A collaboration between the English and Innovation Departments, every BCHS senior will build a portfolio website and present their product to a panel of community professionals.

the presentation process

Though the projects have substantial value in and of themselves, many students have shared that one of the greatest benefits of the senior capstone project is the feedback received from the community panel. BCHS is sincerely grateful for the investment and sacrifices made by panel members in joining our cause of launching tomorrow's leaders! 

Each panel will consist of at least one Barren County employee and 2-5 community representatives.

Students should expect to spend no more than 10 minutes with the panel.  The panel should spend no more than 5 minutes completing the feedback.
