Girdler Elementary opened the meeting with a loud and perfect recitation of our country’s Pledge of Allegiance. They stole the show by following up with “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
Mike Corey (County Clerk) asked to Board to speak prior to the actual meeting start. He stated, “The hardest part of my job and the one that receives the most criticism is overseeing the election and its results. I asked Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles and Barbourville Advocate’s Jay Nolan to help me figure out a better way to gather and publish this year’s results. I have to tell you between Frank Shelton’s efforts with TV-4, Nolan’s online streaming with the Advocate and the students who professionally read the results as they came in, created the first, best live reporting that has ever been accomplished in Knox County. I have heard nothing but praise concerning what was done and I appreciate everyone’s support. Frank Shelton, sir, you are the man.” Corey, Nolan and the Board gave Shelton a round of applause.
