Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday MLK Jr.

Today we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day

"Any number of historic moments in the civil-rights struggle have been used to identify Martin Luther King, Jr. — prime mover of the Montgomery bus boycott, keynote speaker at the March on Washington, youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate. But in retrospect, single events are less important than the fact that King, and his policy of nonviolent protest, was the dominant force in the civil-rights movement during its decade of greatest achievement, from 1957 to 1968." 

(The Seattle Times website has a very informative biography and historical retrospective on the life of Martin Luther King Jr.  Also read more about Dr. King Jr.'s life and legacy by visiting the King Foundation website.)

Ryle softball's Maclai Branson maclai

UNION - It's becoming a bit of a routine in Ryle Raider land that when one of the softball players gets a hit, everyone looks for a leprechaun.

If someone hits a double or triple, either seniors Morgan Smith or Maclai Branson will yell from the dugout, "If ya'll see a leprechaun, say 'yeah!,'" and all the girls raise their hands in the air. 

This team-bonding silliness has made leprechauns the theme of the 2018 softball season, courtesy of an old video on YouTube where broadcasters are reporting leprechaun sightings. Should any of the ladies actually capture one (as folklore tells us), there's no need for a hidden pot of gold or three wishes to secure the Irish fairy's release.

They don't need luck when they have captain Maclai (pronounced Mah-clay) Branson, a University of Kentucky commit who is considered one of the top 20 players in the state of Kentucky. In fact, she's on the Premier Girls Fastpitch Central Region All-American watch list.

Sophomore guard Maddie Scherr led the Raiders’ comeback. After picking up her third foul early in the third quarter, she remained in the game and scored 14 of her game-high 21 points in the second half.

Boone County Schools is one of many school districts across the country that is being subjected to copy- cat threats of the school tragedy in Florida.  We are working with local authorities as they investigate a recent rash of rumors and threats on our campuses.  Student suspects in each of the cases were immediately identified and apprehended.  They were charged by local authorities and disciplined by their schools.   In each case a thorough investigation was conducted by the school district and authorities.  No student or staff member was ever in danger. Confidentiality laws prevent Boone County Schools from talking about the persons involved or the specifics of the incidents. Boone County Schools will continue to remain on alert, following our safety protocols and working with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and Florence Police as future issues arise.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Day

The Meaning of The King Holiday


The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. We commemorate as well the timeless values he taught us through his example — the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit.

We commemorate Dr. King’s inspiring words, because his voice and his vision filled a great void in our nation, and answered our collective longing to become a country that truly lived by its noblest principles. Yet, Dr. King knew that it wasn’t enough just to talk the talk, that he had to walk the walk for his words to be credible. And so we commemorate on this holiday the man of action, who put his life on the line for freedom and justice every day, the man who braved threats and jail and beatings and who ultimately paid the highest price to make democracy a reality for all Americans.

Ryle girls basketball's DI prospects Scherr, Schwartz lead deep Raiders team Lady Raiders

UNION - Time flies when you’re a high school basketball star.

Just two years ago, Maddie Scherr and Lauren Schwartz were the youngest players in a senior-loaded Ryle rotation as they won 24 games and finished as Ninth Region runner-up.

Now they’re the two most experienced veterans leading the way for the Raiders, who have their sights set on the program’s elusive first-ever Ninth Region championship.

Both players are getting offers from Division I schools. Scherr is highly ranked in the class of 2020 by national recruiting services, including fourth by ESPN. Among her offers include Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Xavier.

Medical degree comes first for Ryle senior Jake Chisholm Jake Chisholm

UNION - Paging Dr. Chisholm.

As good a running back as Jake Chisholm has been in his career, he wants to be even better at helping people someday as a doctor.

That is why Chisholm, the Ryle senior running back, committed to play football for the University of Dayton this week. He tweeted his decision Jan. 2. 

“The biggest thing that really attracted me to Dayton was the premed degree they had,” he said. “I had my official visit a month ago, sat down with a professor. She took me through all the classes I would take. She told me about getting into medical school. That was the biggest thing for me.”

From NKY.com:  Ryle has been one of the best programs in Northern Kentucky wrestling for a long time, but the Raiders don’t often win the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference championship.

Solar Eclipse


Important Information about the Solar Eclipse

On Monday August 21st, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Boone County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse.

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Many of our schools will have special activities or lessons planned for this day to accompany the event.  While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  While it should be common sense not to stare directly at the sun with your naked eyes, this advice will be even more important during this event.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  Schools with planned viewing activities will require students to wear proper solar eclipse glasses.

In order to protect our students’ eyes during this event:

  • Students will not participate in any unstructured outdoor activities, including recess
  • Students will be advised to not look directly at the sun without wearing solar eclipse glasses
  • We will provide additional personnel until 4pm for parents who do not want their children riding the bus during the eclipse.Children who do not ride the bus for that reason will have to be picked up by parents at 4pm.

Raider Rumble

Ryle Wrestling has teamed up with the Navy and Marine Corp. for the Raider Rumble to be held on December 13 and 14.  As we enjoy the competition of one of the best tournaments in the state of Kentucky, we need to remember that there are others out there, that are less fortunate than us. With the holidays rapidly approaching, we need to keep them in our thoughts. The Marine Corp. has a excellent program in the "Toys for Tots", no different than the Navy and Marine Corp. working together to defend our freedoms, the Navy/ Marine Corp. and Ryle have joined forces to bring happiness to families at this time of year. We are asking all 18 teams to participate and try to bring one unwrapped toy per competitor, to help bring joy to a child's Christmas.
