Hardin County Schools and the Central Kentucky Community Foundation in collaboration with WKU will announce an innovative and creative educational partnership on Thursday morning (Jan. 24) that will change the educational landscape in Hardin County and positively impact the high standard of Kentucky’s education system in the eyes of the nation.
The announcement and press conference will take place at 10 a.m. EST at the Hardin County Board of Education Central Office at 65 W.A. Jenkins Road in Elizabethtown. The press conference will follow a special meeting of the Hardin County Board of Education.
The partnership will lead to an early-college and career center for Hardin County Schools. Business, industry and community leaders have long expressed the need for building a pipeline of a highly trained and skilled workforce. Hardin County Schools shares this vision and the need to close the opportunity gap that exists in the area of specialized career training for the children of the Hardin County community. The district has been preparing for the center for more than a year. It is part of the district’s facilities construction plans approved some time ago by the Board of Education.
