Eagles News · CIS honors the late Bobby Brockman


There will forever be an empty seat at the Campbellsville High School gymnasium.

Campbellsville Independent Schools is paying tribute to the late Bobby Brockman, who was sports editor at Central Kentucky News-Journal when he died last month.

Brockman graduated from CHS in 1974, and attended countless sporting events in the gymnasium in his role as sports editor.

The section of bleachers where Brockman always sat has been removed, and a plaque has been hung in its place.

The plaque reads, “Your passion, enthusiasm and dedication to the coverage of our local and state sports will not be forgotten. Your memory will live with us forever.”

Brockman, 61, died on Jan. 7.

The last sporting events he attended were the CHS vs. Taylor County girls’ and boys’ basketball games on Friday, Jan. 5, in which the CHS teams were victorious.

At the basketball game following his death, a notebook was placed on the bleachers in his honor.

Brockman’s daughters Rachel and Melanie also graduated from CHS, and his youngest daughter, Savanna, is a sophomore at CHS.
