Harlan County High School was represented at the ARI Student Senate induction ceremonies on Thursday in Pikeville by senior Breanna Epperson and junior Garry Henson. The ARI Student Senate is a student agency component of the U.S. Race to the Top Grant received by Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative (KVEC) and is comprised of students from 17 school districts in the region. Each district selects one junior and one senior to send to the Senate. Over the coming year, Student Senate members will work toward a more participatory role for students, as full partners in their education, through avenues of academics, community service, and school culture, focusing on themes of community health, economic development and energy.
