ANDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – The New Jersey mom who stopped potential school shootings in Anderson and Shelby Counties is spending the day in Kentucky.

On Saturday morning Koeberle Bull was honored by school officials and state leaders for reporting the Kentucky man who threatened her on Facebook.

State Police later tracked down that man, Dylan Jerrell, as he was pulling out of his driveway with weapons and ammunition in his car.

“I am thankful to God that he decided to use ordinary people in extraordinary ways,” said one of the speakers at Saturday’s event.

“I feel so warm and happy inside that I got to meet her and her lovely children. They’re all beautiful,” said Anderson County student Madison Perez.

“I’m not good with being in the lime light. I’m very humble. It’s very humbling. They have us running around in a party bus,” said Bull about her stay in Kentucky.

Bull also served as the grand marshal of Lawrenceburg’s annual Christmas Parade.

People rolled out the red carpet for that parade on Saturday night. After the event Bull told LEX 18 that Kentucky is awesome and she will definitely be back to visit again.
