On Thursday, May 11th, Logan County High School was presented with the Purple Star Award by Brig. Gen. Steve Bullard (Air National Guard and Air Force, Retired), during a recent JROTC assembly.

Bullard, former Chief of Staff for the Kentucky Air National Guard, is currently the Head of the Kentucky Commission on Military Affairs under Gov. Andy Beshear. He explained, “A good friend of mine started the Purple Star program in Ohio in 2017, and it was strictly an Ohio program until 2020. It slowly expanded to other Ohio schools in those three years.
