  • Kentucky Duel Credit Scholarships can provide relief for families, students

    On June 1, I proudly stood with Governor Matt Bevin as he announced additional funding for students participating in dual credit courses with the establishment of the new Kentucky Duel Credit Scholarship. Along with the Workforce Development Secretary Hal Heiner, Governor Bevin announced that $7.5 million will be allocated to school districts across the state for the 2016-17 academic year.
    Dual credit programs allow students to receive both high school and postsecondary academic credit for approved courses, at either a local high school or postsecondary institution.

  • 'I’ve been everywhere, man'

    I always smile when I hear the Johnny Cash song in which he claims to have been “everywhere, man.” Though I will never be able to spout off those famous lyrics like the man in black, I still find myself tapping my foot trying to pick out all the different places he lists where I’ve been.

Three days of fielding calls from the media and processing what it meant that St. Catharine College was closing caught up with me. I lie in bed for an hour, numb again, until my wife came home and found me. I sobbed, my body shaking.

    None of this is easy. St. Catharine College and its people have my heart. 

  • Got jobs? Kentucky sure does

    Site Selection is not a magazine most of us would keep on our coffee table, but for those in government and business who track economic development, this publication is one not to be missed.

    Fortunately, it has had a lot of good things to say about Kentucky in recent years, and over the past two, it has awarded us its annual Governor’s Cup for having more major job announcements than any other state on a per capita basis.
