RCHS senior Jordan Woody won the state oration contest sponsored by the Kentucky Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. (She won first place at the local level for the Simon Kenton Chapter last month, advancing her to the state level.) The KYSSAR had its annual meeting in Erlanger on Saturday. She delivered her oration in front of the state delegation and was presented a certificate, a medal, and a check for $500! She will represent the State of Kentucky at the national contest in Knoxville this summer.
