We received notice this past week that two students from Russellville Jr/Sr High School had been chosen to represent us during the Governor’s Scholarship Program this summer. Congratulations to the following students:
--Ashlee Gilbert, daughter of Don and Holly Gilbert, is a junior at RJSHS.
--Will Mullen, son of Jason and Tanya Mullen, who is also a junior at RJSHS.
These students join approximately 1,000 other GSP students who were chosen from a pool of about 2,000 candidates for this prestigious honor. The Governor's Scholars Program strives to enhance Kentucky's next generation of civic and economic leaders. Established in 1983, the program provides academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience. Students must complete an application and compete with others from across the state. Those selected attend the program free of charge.
KELLY Russell Classic
This coming weekend marks the 4th Annual Kelly Russell Classic Baseball and Softball Tournament. This tournament is held in honor of a former RHS student, Mr. Kelly Russell, who tragically passed away from an injury he sustained during warm-ups of the regional baseball tournament of Ma, 1974. There will be several games held on Saturday, including a luncheon and ceremony, in which Kelly’s sister, Joanne Bennett, will address the teams.
The Russellville Archery Team traveled to the state tournament over spring break. As a team, they shot well enough to qualify for the National 3D Tournament, which will also be held in Louisville during the month of May! Congratulations to our Panther Archers as they have worked extremely hard to achieve their goals this year. We wish them the best as they prepare for national competition!
The RMS and RHS Band students, under the direction of Mr. Brian Brown, traveled to WKU this past week for concert band assessments. Both the middle school and high school programs received Proficient ratings for their performances. Congratulations to our band students and to Mr. Brown!

They created a brochure that was taken to Frankfort by Ashley McGinnis and they also created introductory videos of each class/teacher and a website for more information.
Cassidy Farwick and Addison Mosier were invited to Level 2 with “Meet the Panthers” which incorporated videos of all RJSHS teachers embedded into QR Codes and placed on a website they created.
