"I'm honored to be a part of this year's talented and accomplished Leadership Kentucky Class," said Smith. "I look forward to experiencing all this great program offers, understanding the state's social and economic opportunities and challenges, and using that knowledge to guide my work at CPE."  

The Leadership Kentucky program consists of seven, three-day sessions. Throughout the sessions, class members will meet with many of Kentucky’s current leaders and explore the state’s opportunities and resources.

The June through December program will bring the class across the state: Berea in June, Pikeville in July, Bowling Green in August, Louisville in September, Murray/Western Kentucky in October, Lexington/Frankfort in November and Northern Kentucky in December.
