If you look through the Trimble County High School yearbooks, The Elbmirt, for the three or four years around WWI, there's only one person who rates an entire page for his picture not once, but twice; not the superintendent, not the principal, not a star athlete.  It's Uncle Jess, “the faithful,” the janitor.

A history of the Trimble County Schools


Read about Maria Carter, a teacher at a Trimble County Colored School, whom they neglected to pay.  The story is here. A status report from the Superintendent of Schools in Trimble County from 1900 is here. 1907 is here.
Trimble County High School athletes, after the consolidation of Milton and Bedford Highs, were the Blue Demons. The Blue Demons of Bedford had worn blue and white, while the Milton Panthers had worn black and gold. A compromise on the colors yielded blue and gold. And on January 14, 1955, the student body voted Raiders as the school mascot. Speculation is that it was a result of Trimble County men who rode with John hunt Morgan in the Civil War.

What the 1920 Trimble County High School graduate studied is here. The Trimble County High School Fee Announcement, 1883, here.

“An election held in Bedford to take the voice of the voters as to the establishment of a graded school resulted in a vote of 19 majority in favor of the school.  There was a strong fight put up by some of the largest property owners.” from The Owingsville Outlook, September 17, 1903
