Sponsors provide HORIZON to students across Clay County

CLAY COUNTY-The Dale Hollow HORIZON is now in its third year of being distributed to each county school for students in grades three through 12 thanks to four local sponsors.

Copies of the newspaper are being provided to students through local sponsors Celina Dairy Queen, Copeland Medical Services, Cumberland River Hospital, and Tri-County Electric, HORIZON publisher Jon Weaver said.

“Students in those grades at Hermitage Springs School, Maple Grove School, Celina K-8 and Clay County High are again getting a copy of the paper each week due to the generosity of these sponsors,” Weaver said.

As a part of the newspaper distribution program, the HORIZON is also featuring a school news page to give as much recognition to students and school programs as possible.

“We appreciate the sponsors making this whole scenario possible,” Weaver said, “and we are very grateful to school officials for their help and coordination on the school news page each week.”

Schools play a huge role in any community, but even more so in a small, rural setting, Weaver said, and the newspaper will again work with school officials from the classroom to the central office to let citizens “know what’s going on in the school system.”

Topics will range from individual student news, class news and school-wide news to system-wide news, Weaver said.

“We hope this page and the newspaper distribution plan will serve an important role not only for students, but for parents and other interested citizens,” Weaver said. “We all have a stake in our schools whether we have a student there or not.

“It’s a cliche’, but these young people are truly the future of our county, and we all need to work together to get them the best possible education and to give them, and our school officials, a pat on the back for jobs well done,” he said.
