BC-TV News - On the Road

During this holiday season what are you looking for? A little getaway from all the hustle and bustle, an exciting new dining experience that the chain restaurants just can’t offer, something new that will entertain everyone in the family, or that perfect unique one of a kind present for that special someone?


Recently, the BC-TV News team went “On the Road” to Owensboro and may have found just what you’re looking for. The students were taken to Owensboro and given 3 hours to meet new people and tell their stories. The trip resulted in our students having their eyes opened as the people they met shared their life experiences and journeys with them. I hope the stories they tell will also help you get to know our warm neighbors to the north.
