STA Livingston Visitor and Training Center: P.O. Box 360, Livingston, Ky. 40445


A record crowd of 74 overflowed the cafeteria and filled the new STA Visitor and Training Center as we gathered in December to honor the achievements of this year's End to End Class, Team Turtle from the Bourbon Chase and the Volunteer of the Year.  It was also an opportunity to welcome the participants to the new Center and give everyone a chance to see the progress made toward turning this facility into a premier training facility. 

Kellie Adkins was the winner of the Mike's Hike and Bike gift certificate as an incentive award to join the STA in October.  The STA honored Matt Hoyes from Bardstown for his epic run of the Trace over 8 days.  On hand to receive our thanks and appreciation were members of Team Turtle who carried the flag for the STA during this past Bourbon Chase.  The evening ended with the recognition of this years class of End 2 Enders and the awarding of the Volunteer of the Year Award to former STA treasurer and the construction leader on the Visitor Center, Scott Templeton. 

We are extremely grateful to everyone for the support and look forward to a great year of new achievements to honor in December 2015.
