?    The Scott County Youth Grant-Making Council, whose members are 11 students from the community, discussed community service projects at their recent meeting.
    The students are concerned about several issues in the community and as a way to help, they have voted to have a drive for a charitable organization each month. Jerel Taylor, an incoming freshman at Scottsburg High School, is the new volunteer coordinator for the project.
    Each month, the students will have researched a nonprofit agency in Scott County to determine the needs, and then Council members will bring a donation to the regular meeting.

??    For the 2008-2009 school year, Scottsburg High School will be implementing a program called Career Clusters.
    Career Clusters involves community volunteers in several different career sectors.
    According to Jennifer Mills, who is coordinating Career Clusters, there has been a wonderful response rate to volunteers for this program already, but there are a few key career clusters that still need  representation from the local community to fully engage and match students’ selected interests.
    Volunteers are still needed to cover students who are interested in participating in clusters devoted to agriculture, veterinary science, music, design, medical doctor, nursing, dentist, pharmacy, science, and engineering.

? ??    A statuesque 18-year-old from Austin, Brooklyn Elizabeth Young, is the 2008 Miss Scott County Fair Queen.
    Queen Brooklyn was crowned at the conclusion of the annual pageant, which this year had attracted 14 competitors for the 2008 tiara. Judges had a difficult time deciding who was going to claim the crown, even leaving their table for a final consultation among themselves backstage before declaring Brooklyn the new Queen.
    They also finally came to a conclusion on the 2008 Fair Princess title. They selected Kylie Ann Amick for that honor. But first, Kylie was declared 2008 Miss Congeniality, an honor decided among the contestants themselves.
    “Wow! I am so surprised and pleased. I’ve very happy to be Fair Princess and Miss Congeniality. These girls are great!” declared Princess Kylie after the contest.
    Queen Brooklyn and Princess Kylie were congratulated by their fellow contestants and then posed patiently for dozens of photos taken of them and 2007 Miss Scott County Aarika Hutton as well as with parents and well-wishers.
