Members of the Paducah Tilghman High School class of 2013 received their diplomas Saturday at McRight Field.

Salutatorian Alicia Humphrey said she had grown into a new person during her time at the school.

“As a freshman at Tilghman, I remember walking down the hallways always feeling really nervous,” she said. “All the upperclassmen were taller and prettier and smarter and so much older than me. The building was foreign, and the teacher’s faces were no longer familiar.”

She said she soon learned what the school had in store for her.

Cyber-Bullying and Cheating in Education PDF Print E-mail

Special to the Tilghman Bell, May 2013

Over the span of my twenty-eight years in education, I’ve seen trends and fads come and go, with each year bringing a new challenge.  Educators adapt quite well to anything that can creep its way into classrooms and potentially inhibit the learning of students.   When all is said and done, our primary purpose at Paducah Tilghman is to maximize student achievement and ensure that every student graduates college and career ready, with no exceptions.  Anything that detracts from this purpose has always and will always be dealt with seriously.  A perfect example of this pertains to the availability of modern technology and the easy access to information that our society enjoys today.  Interestingly, technology is both a blessing and a curse, with its potential to enrich our lives in numerous ways, yet also possibly ruin educational possibilities, careers, individuals, and families at the same time.  Two “curses,” evident in schools across America, are cyber-bullying and academic cheating.
