Eight outstanding Jessamine County seniors received $1,000 college scholarships from the Nicholasville Rotary Club at a June 30 ceremony at Central Bank. Scholarship awards were based on evidence of community service and a "Service above self" essay. Funds for the scholarship are raised through the annual pancake breakfast and individual member donations.
Learning fabric art
Instructor Ashley Fosson helped a student draw a pattern for her soft sculpture at the Jessamine County Public Library's Art Alive! program June 25. At the event, teens and adults explored the medium of fabric and mixed media to create their own stuffed soft sculpture. Each participant designed the front and back of a "pillow" and sewed them together to take home. Visit www.jesspublib.org to learn more or to sign up for a class.
