Day 1- Kenny’s Country Cheese, and Mammoth Cave

The first day began with a tour of Fern Creek High School. The students witnessed the MJROTC drill teams perform, the school garden, and the communications department. Then it was off to Glasgow, Kentucky to see Kenny’s Country Cheese. At Kenny’s Country Cheese, the students gained a deeper understanding of the cheese making process. After the tour, the group was off to one of the 7 wonders of the world- Mammoth Cave. On the trip to the cave,  students chowed down on delicious sandwiches from Mayán Café. Students were awestruck at the natural beauty of the cave. Later that night,students gathered at SmokeTown USA barbecue for a delicious meal. All were exhausted, but anticipated another great day to follow.

Questions for the students on the trip:

What was your greatest realization of the day?

What connections did you make to food/ the food economy in Kentucky?

What were your new experiences throughout the day? Explain their significance.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed Day 1 because it gave me a chance to realize that I missed the Navajo students much more than I once acknowledged. This whole experience has been the highlight of my high school experience and I’ve loved every minute of this adventure. It still blows my mind that the Vice President of the Navajo Nation knows me by name. I’m very lucky to have gotten a chance to be a part of this and meet all these wonderful people. I can’t wait to see where this relationship might go in the future..

  2. I’m sad i couldn’t go with you guys that day, but it sounds like you all had a really good time and learned a lot from all the awesome people you guys met. I’m thankful I had the opportunity to experience this and form these new relationships that I wouldn’t have had otherwise.

  3. Day 1 was just the the beginning of where we had left off from when we left Arizona. Day one felt like i was just on the world with the people i have some much love for , so of course it was amazing. All i could see was smiling faces and bugs everywhere but it was the best time in my life . It was like time wasn’t a factor because i never wanted it to end. Day one paved the way for the dreams and plans for bigger and better things.

  4. I enjoyed the visit to Louisville. It was quite an experience; the green scenery and the friends that we all have made. I hope to return someday just visit at a slower pace this time around, there was so much to see and do, but we ran out of time. I hope the students stay in touch and one day as adults interact, visit. Life, is filled with many things and one of those is adventure. Venturing this part of the country was awesome. Thank-you Brent and the rest of you.
