Betsy Layne High School serves rural Floyd County in the eastern Kentucky town of Stanville, population 206. Students there produce a video program called “Bobcat Banter” where they usually talk about sports and student life. But early last year “Bobcat Banter” introduced some special guests.
“We’re here with Mr. and Mrs. Gates from the Gates Foundation,” the students said.
The world’s richest man and his partner in life and philanthropy, Melinda Gates, had dropped in for a chat.
