Ballard Robinson, long-time postmaster, school board member dies at
The Junction City post office has lost its long-time chief. The Boyle
County school system has lost its ``best friend.''
Ballard Lee Robinson, postmaster of Junction City for 31 years and
a member of the Boyle County Board of Education for 17 years, died Saturday
at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center after a long illness. Robinson,
a resident of 145 Hancock St., was 54.
Robinson's role as school board member - he was vice chairman at the
time of his death and had served as chairman - was remembered fondly and
emotionally Saturday by fellow board members and a former superintendent
of the Boyle system.
They also recalled his many years of service as the public address
announcer for the Boyle County High School football and boys' basketball
teams - his role as the ``voice of the Rebels.''
``Ballard was the greatest friend I ever had,'' said board chairman
Eddie Caldwell, who has been on the panel for 11 years. ``He was truly
a friend, not only to me but to the whole district.''
Robinson had a direct impact on the growth and improvement in the district's
academic programs, sports programs and facilities over the years, Caldwell
``He had a lot to do with the $2.3-million package of technology projects
we recently approved as well as the recent press box and stadium improvements
and the renovation of the high school a few years ago,'' said Caldwell.
``But more important, he wanted to make sure each and every student
could grow academically and athletically and that each and every teacher
and staff member would be given the necessary time and tools to help them,''
Robinson ``never thought of himself or of power or anything like that,''
said Caldwell. ``He only thought of the students and employees and what
was best for them and the district.''
Caldwell remembered how Robinson not only was a fan of Boyle County
teams but also a participant, at least on the sideline.
``He really enjoyed announcing those football and basketball games.
It made him feel a part of something he really loved,'' said Caldwell.
``It won't be long before students, parents, teachers - everybody in
the system - will realize how much he meant. A voice for them is now silent,''
Preston Miles, who's been on the school board for seven years, said
he regarded Robinson as his ``mentor.
``I learned a great deal from Ballard. He was a mentor to me and really
was, because of his long experience and intelligence and dedication, an
educator to the whole board,'' said Miles. ``He was a real leader who had
a real fundamental understanding of how to effectively balance academic,
special education, extracurricular, transportation and all the other various
programs and give each the attention it deserved.
``The one thing, though, that made him a strong and effective leader
was that he saw students as individuals with special potential, talents
and needs,'' Miles said.
Emajo Carlton, who retired as Boyle superintendent in 1993, said that
many people in the county district ``don't realize how many contributions''
Robinson made to the system.
``There are so many programs and facilities and issues where he had
an impact but what stood out to me overall was his character,'' Carlton
said. ``He was sensible, level-headed and caring and always put what he
thought was best for the system at the top of his list. He was a unique
And, Carlton said, he also was one of her best friends.
``I've lost a dear, personal friend. But more than that, the Boyle
school community has lost its best friend.''
The Boyle County superintendent's office next week will announce the
process governing how a replacement on the board will be selected. Robinson
represented the Junction City area.
Born June 24, 1943, in Boyle County, he was a son of Eva Robinson of
Junction City and the late James R. Robinson. He was a member of St. Patrick
