Colonels News · Landers Foundation Establishes goals for renovation and scholarships

Kris Landers graduated OCHS in 1992 and went on to work at the Oldham County Board of Education for 30 years.  He was passionate about both Oldham County High School (“OCHS”) and the University of Kentucky Wildcats.  Kris was a fixture on the sidelines for our OCHS Football and Basketball teams dating back to the mid 1980’s.  He could remember every game and every player to wear the Colonel Blue and White.  Kris loved being with the coaches and teams; even giving a motivational speech from time to time.  His impact reached far beyond the sidelines as he worked with the LaGrange Fire Department and the Crusade for Children for over 40 years.  In 2013, Kris was the Grand Marshal of the Oldham County Day Parade.  In 2019, Kris was awarded the Colonel “Lead the Charge” Award for his long-time commitment to OCHS.  Currently, the Kris Landers Foundation is raising money to help remember and honor Kris for generations to come.  Plans are being made to improve and name the OCHS football stadium in his honor; and to provide a yearly scholarship to a deserving  OCHS student.
