Higher Education Debate to Resume in 2013

A year ago, there were surely many central Kentuckians unaware there even existed a school known as the University of Pikeville. The small eastern Kentucky school officially changed its name from Pikeville College in 2011. It was known as a rival to Georgetown College, particularly on the basketball court. Then, in 2012 UPike became a bone of contention across the state when a bill was filed in the Kentucky House of Representatives to bring the institution into the state public university system.
