This week, three high performing teens in Boyle County, Kentucky were given tickets to see potential Presidential Candidate, Dr. Ben Carson speak Thursday night at the Norton Center for the Arts in Danville, KY.
Joseph Alcorn is a Junior at Danville High School. He was selected to receive two tickets for Thursday Night’s Speech by Dr. Ben Carson at the Norton Center for the Arts for him and a parent. The award was given by the Boyle County Republican Party.
Joseph is a member of the Student Council, the Student Body Leadership team, and the National Honor Society. He was a member of the Junior Statesmen of America for two years and currently plays football for DHS.
