This is an exciting time for me to take the helm at KCTCS. President Obama’s announcement about America’s College Promise has generated a great deal of interest and speculation among community colleges, students and legislators. Although there’s still much debate to come, the idea of free community college is enticing to prospective students of all ages.
Many Kentuckians dream of a better life where they can earn family-sustaining wages. America’s College Promise could open the door to those who believed it was closed to them and put them on a path to fulfill their dreams.
