This exhibition only gives one Best in Show and 1st and 2nd place in the 8 categories, so our students represented Bath County Schools well, as they always do. The show will be on display in the main gallery until the end of April. The Gateway Regional Arts Center is located at 101 East Main Street in Mt. Sterling.

BCHS Governor's School For The Arts Recipient


Congratulations to Miki Marksberry for being selected to the Governor's School for the Arts Program.  The GSA programs mission is to build lifelong relationships with the arts.   A student must be passionate, collaborative, inclusive, innovative and stewards of the Arts to be selected for participation in the GSA program.

Bath County is very proud of Miki and we look forward to following her success.

Congratulation to BCHS Governor's Scholar Recipients


scholar   Congratulations to Dakota Davis, Nicholas Frizzell, and Caroline Whitt on being accepted into the Governor's Scholar Program.  The Program’s mission is to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders.


   In order to participate in the Program, students must compete on a state-wide level. Selection for the program is highly competitive, with an application process similar to that of prestigious colleges and universities. In addition to an academic profile that includes difficulty of course load, GPA, and at least one standardized test score, the application requires an outline of all extracurricular activities, a history of volunteer service, and a list of job positions held. A Teacher recommendation which includes both a quantitative evaluation and qualitative descriptions of the student’s performance and potential; as well as a Community Recommendation which shows how a student performs in a community setting beyond the high school are also required. The final component of the application is an original writing entry.


   Bath County is very proud of these students and we look forward to following their success.

Congrats to our Weightlifting Team!

The weightlifting team competed this past weekend in the push/pull state championships at North Bullitt High School. Our JV team won the State Championship. Our team competed against much larger schools from all across the State. There is a maximum of 100 points possible. We scored 82 points with the next closest team being St. Xavier, a private school from Louisville with a score of 53 points. The individual medal winners are as follows: Quentin Lewis 148lb State Champion, Hunter Donathan 220lb State Champion, Tanner Butcher 308lb State Champion, Jamie Gamble 275lb State Champion, Brady Pitts SHW State Champion,  John Landsaw 308lb State Runner Up, Jacob Flora 123lb State Runner Up, Griffin Fraley 275lb 3rd place, Chris Norris 220lb 3rd place, William Johnson 132lb 3rd place, Skylar Smith 3rd place, Christian Arnett White 3rd place. A lot of our lifters lifted up in a heavier class and still won the State championship by a rather large total of weight. In several of our classes, our lifters won by over a 100 pounds total, which is a large accomplishment. This makes back to back JV team State Championships for the Bath County Powerlifting Team. Congrats to all the team members. They put in a lot of work each and every day. They learn to fight both physical and mental barriers to reach their goals. 

Congrats to our Band!
