Campbellsville Middle School hosted a “Walk & Bike to School” event this morning, promoting healthy living. Participants and volunteers either walked or rode a bicycle for 1 mile. Among the participants was Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young.
The event began this morning in front of the Taylor County Judicial Center, and after a short send off, participants traveled to Campbellsville Middle School. Volunteers were there to ensure that students were safe with their bikes, helmets and other gear during the send off. Once on the road, they were there to assist any student that needed assistance.
Upon arrival at Campbellsville Middle School, students received a warm welcome, and were presented certificates and other items.
Please check back often, as additional pictures will be added as they are received.

Note: The City of Campbellsville does not release and Campbellsville.us does not publish sensitive photos that may be of a graphic nature. However, these photos are of a mock disaster, conducted with Campbellsville High School, for educational purposes, and no one was injured. Therefore, the value of educating young people about the effects of drinking and driving, and the fatal consequences, led to the decision to post these on this website.
There were fire trucks, medic units, police cars, and medical helicopters on the scene of a car collision staged on Bell Ave. behind Campbellsville High School on Thursday morning, 4/25.
With prom this past Saturday, local Emergency Services and Campbellsville High School conducted a Mock Disaster intended to teach kids the dangers and consequences involved with drinking and driving.

Those in attendance heard the dispatch of the collision, witnessed as local emergency responders arrived on scene and as “actors” were ”extricated and treated” on scene for “injuries sustained in the collision”, “upset and crying family members”, one “arrested” for “DUI”, and one “pronounced deceased” by Taylor County Coroner.
While this “collision” is an example of a real life tragedy, the event was pre-planned, no one was actually hurt, and there was no one really charged with a crime.

In Summer 2012, Governor Steve Beshear visited Campbellsville, and presented the City with a Community Development Block Grant check for almost $750,000 to be used toward the construction of a new water tank. Today, progress is currently underway as construction work has an early start.
The new water tank, which is being constructed near Industrial Park on Hwy 55 South, will replace two old water tanks, increase water pressure, increase the community’s water capacity by approximately 200,000 gallons, and improve water quality.
Mayor Young says “a vast amount of concrete and steel has been put into place, the foundation is complete, and the tank should be complete and storing water by late this fall.”
