RCHS Students and Staff Pay Tribute to Officer Daniel Ellis

On Wednesday, November 11, Rockcastle County High School students and staff joined people throughout Central Kentucky to pay tribute to Officer Daniel Ellis and the procession of law enforcement officers as they traveled from Richmond to Adair County.  A sea of royal blue lined the front of the school campus to honor the late officer’s service and sacrifice.  The RCHS JROTC provided a Color Guard and cadets were attired in dress uniforms, the RCHS Art Department under the direction of teacher Les Scalf designed two banners to line Highway 461, and the five RCHS students who are children of law enforcement officers were interviewed by reporters from Lexington television stations.  (Photos courtesy of Janet Wells, RCHS Librarian)
