Memorial Scholarship Fund Established in Honor of Ralph and Mary Frank Cooper
Retired football coach and teacher Ralph Eugene Cooper, 90, of Warsaw, IN, passed away on July 25, 2016. He was born April 10, 1926, in Paducah, KY and was one of five sons of William and Mary Bell Cooper. He is survived by two sons, Dr. Ralph W. Cooper (Cathy Waugh) of Bowling Green, KY and Gary R. Cooper (Shayna) of Warsaw, IN.

Mr. Cooper and his wife, Mary Frank, taught in Paducah Public Schools for over 30 years.

Ralph graduated from Paducah Tilghman High School in 1944, where he was a basketball player, track and field standout, and All-State and All-Southern football player. He was drafted in the fall of 1944 and served in the United States Navy on the escort carrier, the USS Savo Island. After an honorable discharge he received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy and was offered the opportunity to play football for the Midshipmen. Ralph decided to return to his home state of Kentucky to attend college on a football scholarship at Murray State University (Murray, KY). He was a starting member of Murray State’s 1949 Tangerine Bowl team; this was the only national bowl appearance in school history. Ralph earned a bachelor’s degree from Murray State University in 1950 and a Master of Education degree from Peabody College (Vanderbilt University) in 1952.
Story Participates in Kentucky Girls State Leadership Program
Paducah Tilghman rising senior Kathryn Story recently attended the American Legion Auxiliary’s Kentucky Girls State leadership program at University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky. The 70th annual program in Kentucky took place June 5-10.

American Legion Auxiliary Girls State is a nonpartisan program that teaches young women responsible citizenship and love for God and Country. Since the inception of the Girls State program in 1937, nearly one million young people have had the opportunity to learn first-hand how their state and local government works.

High school girls who have completed their Junior year spend an intensive week of study, working together as self-governing citizens at Auxiliary-sponsored Girls State programs. Participants are selected based on leadership, character, honesty, cooperativeness, and participation in service in their schools and communities.
