The job of the School Resource Officer, Sgt. Likins noted, is to bridge the gap. Likins stated, “When kids see who you are, you are another trusted adult in the school system. We are not just here to stop violence, though we are trained and prepared for that if needed; that’s the dark reason we are here. Even more importantly, though, we are here to build a rapport, to guide, and to teach.” It’s the vision that Superintendent Sheila Mitchell and Sherriff Joe Milam envisioned when they collaborated in a shared plan to have not only the best but also the safest schools in the state. That vision involved hiring an SRO for every school in the district, years before it became a state requirement, as it only did just a few weeks ago when Governor Andy Beshear signed House Bill 63 into law on April 8th, 2022 that each campus in the state must have an SRO by August 1st, 2022. In that regard, Anderson County Public Schools have been forward thinking on school safety.

In the United States, there are more than 1.2 million students, 80% of which attend public schools, who are facing unique stressors and challenges from their peers and yet who are often not targeted for additional support: the children who have at least one parent or caretaker active in the military. Yet the studies that show the effects of an active duty/deployed caretaker on student achievement have been around for decades.

All her kids are loaded onto the school bus headed to another band competition. First it was her own children and then it was someone else’s. For more than thirty years, Ms. Rita Eddington has driven a school bus for Anderson County Public Schools, including too many band trips to count. She drove Gary Burton’s students to competitions, then Nancy Drury’s, and now Patrick Brady’s bunch. And she has loved each and every one of her “kids” along the way.

In each of the schools in Anderson County there is an office, prominent in some and tucked back in others, called the Family Resource, Youth Service Center (FRYSC for short). Most of the offices are marked by racks of colorful coats, cabinets of art supplies, baskets of stress balls and fidget toys, and the like. Their motto is “Whatever it takes”-- a motto lived in the flesh by the FRYSC coordinators who put unwavering effort into ensuring the families and students in our community have access to the resources they need to be self-sufficient and strong. As a result, the best way to describe our FRYSCs is as “Jacks of all trades.”
