Russellville Independent Schools staff handed out 1,200 light bulbs to the community Wednesday – bulbs that were colored green as a symbol of solidarity with Kentucky’s COVID-19 victims – Superintendent Bart Flener was reminded of another crucial juncture in U.S. history.
The school district teamed up with local sponsors Cayce Mill Supply and First Southern National Bank to purchase and give away 1,200 green light bulbs – one to symbolize each of the district’s students, Flener said. First Southern National Bank contributed $600 to cover half of the order’s cost, Flener said. Cayce Mill Supply covered shipping, he said.
