The Russell Independent Schools’ Family Resource and Youth Services Center thanks the Ashland Alliance Young Professionals for the support and coordination of the Back to School Backpack Program.
We also thank People’s Bank, Stultz Pharmacy, Brooks Eye Care, Dollar General, Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital and Greenup County Retired Teachers for their support of the Ashland Alliance and the Back to School Backpack Program.
These agencies and individuals enable us to provide basic school supplies for a successful start of a new school year to the students and families of Russell Independent Schools. We are grateful to be part of a caring and supportive community.

The family of John “Terry” Abshire extends gratitude and thanks to all those who blessed us with their presence, kind words, cards and food, the hugs they gave and the thoughtful service rendered during the passing of our loved one. No words can describe the comfort their action gave each of us who mourn our loss.
We especially thank the kind veterans who made the memorial and service so special, and the thoughtful words and prayers of pastor Mike Rice of Fairview Baptist Church and pastor Edgar “Pete” Miller of Burnaugh Baptist Church and the many members of both congregations whose many acts of kindness eased our grief. We love and treasure them all.
Peggy Rankin for the family of John T. Abshire, Boyd County
