Officials Fight Off KCTCS in Scott County

Scott County officials are increasing the intensity of their efforts to encourage the Kentucky Community and Technical College System to keep a high priority on building an advanced manufacturing training facility in Georgetown. "What we fear is its priority-funding status is slipping, relative to other projects around the state," Scott County Magistrate Tom Prather said. The Georgetown project stands in 11th place on the KCTCS priority funding list. It once ranked as high as fifth, according to Mark Manuel, Bluegrass Community and Technical College's vice president for workforce and institutional development.
