  • When I first met Charlie Campbell, he was at the end of his rope -- the end of his hope.

    A man in the community told me about Charlie and his need, among other things, for a wheelchair-accessible van so he could get his wife out of the house so she could feel normal again.

    The Bedford Rotary Club has hosted many Trimble County school administrators and teachers recently (see Trimble Banner articles on 9/3/15, 9/10/15, 12/3/15, 2/4/16, 10/6/16, and 11/10/16), the latest being Kathy House, TCS Chief Academic Officer (CAO) on Dec. 20. Interactions with TCS staff and students have grown significantly the past several years, resulting in greater appreciation and understanding of the many positive efforts being undertaken to improve education in our communities.
