BEREA (AP) — A coroner says a
woman who died while hiking at Indian Fort Mountain near Berea lost
her balance near the edge of a cliff
and fell more than 100 feet.
Madison County Coroner Jimmy
Cornelison told the Richmond Register that 20-year-old Kimchi Son of
Lexington fell between 125 and 140
feet while hiking in the Berea College Forest near Indian Fort Theater on Saturday with her boyfriend.
Cornelison said autopsy results
showed that she died of injuries
consistent with a long fall. Her
death has been ruled accidental.
Cornelison, who has worked for
Madison County emergency services
for 30 years, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that injuries are common along the trail, but it was the
first fatal fall that he could remember.

Conkwright and Clark Middle
schools are among the 29 middle
schools chosen to participate in the
GEAR UP Kentucky 3.0 program beginning this year.
The Gaining Early Awareness and
Readiness for Undergraduate Programs is a six-year grant program
funded by the U.S. Department of
Education aimed at increasing the
number of students who graduate
from high school and enroll in postsecondary education.
Clark Middle School Principal
Cindy Whiteside said she was excited both middle schools were chosen to be a part of the program.
“We’re excited about the possibilities this program offers to our students,” Whiteside said. “The
ultimate goal of the program is to
get more kids to believe they can go
to college and to prepare them so
they will be able to go to college. It
focuses on all seventh graders, but
really targets those students who
would be the first in their families to
go to college.”
GEAR UP Kentucky provides
things like academic advising, life
skills training — study skills, personal finance — summer enrichment programs, mentoring and
career exploration, as well as college tours and help understanding
the process of applying for college
and financial aid.
The program works with the
schools and students as well as their
entire families, Clark County Public
Schools Assistant Superintendent
Pat Rosenthal said, so they can
learn about college together and
work together to make the dream of
attending college a reality.
“A lot of these families don’t know
a lot about what it takes to go to college so GEAR UP has activities
