Local students pretend to be wax figures of famous Kentuckians

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Some local school kids are creating their own wax museum of famous Kentuckians to help raise money for a good cause.

On Wednesday at Ruth Moyer School in Fort Thomas kids from the 4th grade will stand still like wax figures pretending to be famous people from the past and present of Kentucky history. The children will strike their poses at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m., complete with their own props and will be prepared to recite a biography of the famous person they are pretending to be.

Famous Kentuckians that will be portrayed include former Bengal Chris Collinsworth, Colonel Sanders, Kentucky basketball coach Adolf Rupp and Tricia Macke from Fox 19!

The students will also have collection cans to raise money for selected charities. The school is located at 219 Highland Avenue in Ft. Thomas.
