Community Garden serves community, provides hands-on study

'Being able to share healthy and novel produce with the local community is important. It's also important to be able to provide students with a learning experience that is visceral and practical. Working at the garden is something that students are more likely to remember and retain than standard classroom based activities or learning modules." - MIKE BOSELA

Just want to say "thank you" to the fire department; we were at the Best Western after a long drive from Texas, planning to move in the next day, which is why you couldn't find us.

We had just returned home after several years away, looking forward so much to moving into the house again. We drove up Saturday morning to find it still smouldering.

Get In, Get Out and Get to Work with KCTCS

By Jay Box

There's a new way for Kentuckians to earn college credit tuition free. The new Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship pays for up to 32 hours for programs in five in-demand business sectors.

The 16 colleges of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) offer numerous programs in these fields, which are health care, advanced manufacturing, transportation/logistics, business services/information technology and construction/trades. Many of these programs can be completed in four months or less and can lead to careers that pay higher salaries than some requiring a bachelor's degree.

It's no secret Kentucky employers have many jobs that go unfilled because they cannot find qualified workers. In fact, Kentucky's workforce participation rate is 47th in the country (57.6 percent vs. the U.S. average of 62.7 percent) and Kentucky businesses are clamoring for educated workers to fill jobs. This scholarship is designed to connect the needs of employers with the needs of Kentuckians.
