We have several students to recognize this week for their outstanding contributions to our school and community!

Barrett Croslin, a senior at RHS, was chosen to participate in the Best of the Bluegrass Football All-Star game.  This game is played annually and matches a team of state players against a team of Louisville-area players.  Coach John Myers was chosen as an assistant coach for the team and John Carter Myers, a student at Stevenson Elementary, participated as a water boy for the team.  Barrett had several defensive tackles during the game, which was played on Dec. 14 at St. Xavier.  Congratulations to Barrett on this prestigious honor and for representing RHS very well!!!
