Donate Kacy Lee Johnson Memorial Scholarship Fund
Kacy Lee Johnson, 29, of Bardstown, died unexpectedly Saturday June 13, 2020 at Norton Brownsboro Hospital following a very brief illness. She was born January 13, 1991 to Brenda McCubbins Johnson and the late George Johnson. Kacy was employed as a registered nurse in the trauma intensive care unit at UofL Hospital, and was a former employee of SpecialPets Healthcare, Nelson County EMS and Flaget Hospital Emergency Department. She was an honor graduate of the University of Louisville School of Nursing and was only two months away from receiving the Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree from UofL. That degree will be awarded posthumously. Kacy was a true professional caring for her patients from her days as an EMT and throughout her nursing career. She precepted many of her co-workers and touched so many lives in the medical world and beyond. Kacy met the love of her life, Brad Hogg, when she was the maid of honor in her best friend’s wedding and he was the best man in his best friend’s wedding. It was a true storybook romance and they were married on October 22, 2016. They enjoyed traveling, entertaining friends and family, and spoiling their beloved cats. Kacy also enjoyed horseback riding, swimming, and swim team competitions, and playing her favorite game of cards, Rook. She had a soft spot in her heart for shelter animals and believed in adopting them. Kacy loved having political discussions to share her conservative point of view. And she enjoyed nothing more then spending time with her husband, family, and friends.

Donate Mike and Sharon Bell Scholarship Fund
Fifty years ago, Mike and Sharon began their ministry to the congregation at Glendale Christian Church. Little did anyone realize the gift our community received when the church called Mike and Sharon. Each day they actively invested themselves in helping others. Countless lives have been touched and blessed by their love and generosity. They planted the seeds of a better life and a better community by the examples they gave us. This year in gratitude of their 50 years of service, Glendale Christian Church established the Mike and Sharon Bell Scholarship to ensure their legacy of kindness endures. It’s a tribute to both their passion for the church and their passion for the people of our community, for their service went beyond the church.
