GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Graves County’s Got Talent. That was a message America received in 2009 when Kevin Skinner became known as “The Chicken Catcher” and won the fourth season prize of $1 million on the NBC-TV show “America’s Got Talent.”
Now, the realization that “Graves County's Got Talent” is turning that sentence into its own show: an opportunity to highlight talented students from throughout the Graves County Schools. One student each will represent the eight elementary schools. Two will represent the middle school and three will represent the high school.
“I started working on this idea last year and thought it would be a great way to showcase our district's talent,” said Donna Gream, manager of the Graves County Schools’ Performing Arts Center. “I started getting in touch with each principal and each school held its own talent show or turned in a representative for our district-wide event.”
