Frontiersmen Simon Kenton Visits MVES

On Wednesday, March 18th Mount Vernon Elementary Fifth Graders were taken back in time to chat with one of Kentucky’s great Frontiersmen, Simon Kenton. This wonderful opportunity was brought about thanks to Toyota and Citizen’s Bank of Mt. Vernon. Our students learned many interesting facts about Simon Kenton that ultimately shaped the state we treasure today. Also, in attendance for this special guest appearance was the Head of the Kentucky Humanities Council Mr. Ben Chandler. MVES would like to say thanks for making day one to remember and sparking interest in statehood and frontiersmen.
