“… Ethan Horn has always been the ultimate team guy. Never worried about himself, and always worried about the team. You have brought a level of toughness to our program over the last 4 years that has made us better from top to bottom. There are no secrets, you and your family have had a tough year. It warms my heart to see your mom here with you today, I know how much that means to you and her and it means just as much to our team. I am proud of you- Stay tough and stay selfless!”
“ Will Lafferty has been a big contributor to our program during his 4 years in high school. You have been able to use your athleticism and basketball IQ to help us win several games over the course of your career. One of the most memorable moments of the year so far, came from your buzzer beater against Floyd Central, and I am thankful that I got to be a part of that. Not only will we miss you here in our basketball program, I am confident that citgo will be sad to see you leave as well. Continue to work hard and we wish you the absolute best of luck in your baseball career at Marshall!”
“ Kaden Gillispie For the past 4 years you have been the ultimate competitor. You have had to battle some adversity this year with injuries, and although we hate that for you, we know it was all part of HIS plan. Your willingness to win is special and I have no doubt that mentality will drive you to success with whatever you choose to do in your future. I look forward to following you as you continue your athletic and academic career playing football. Wherever you choose to go, they’ll be getting a winner.”
Lawrence Co. Cheer Coach Jennifer Pannell
“… I’ve had the privilege and honor to have been in these 3 girls lives now for many years. It’s been inspiring to watch how hard they’ve worked, the leadership they given, and the growth they’ve had into being young adults. They are so special to me and it’s always hard when chapters come close to the end. They have sacrificed so much from their family and friends for a sport they love so much, giving everything they have in the process. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of Seniors leading our team this year. The compassion, love, and commitment they have is an example they’ve shown the younger generation. They are going to be productive citizens in this world and I couldn’t be more proud of them. I am excited to see where God leads their future. They not only excel in cheer, but in academics as well. This takes a lot of sacrifice and structure because we are a year long sport and they should be commended. I can’t Thank them enough for all they’ve done for me and their peers. I’ve been blessed more than they’ll ever know.”
“… We’ve got a few more memories to make together, some of our biggest yet, and I will cherish everyone of them.”
