Brooke Brown, a student at West Kentucky Community and Technical College, was recently named the college's Student of the Month for October.
"I am very thankful to be selected as Student of the Month. It is an honor to even be considered," said the 31-year-old Ballad County native who is the first in her family to go to college.
Cooper says, "I love Ballard County. Marla and I moved home in 1988, after attending school. We were gone for about four years, but we came home and we built a house, because we wanted to work and live here, because we love it here. We love the people, we love the area! We have raised our family here.
