Judge Executive Ron "Buckwheat" Gilbert along with Mayor Eddie Carter, and EDA Chairman Bill Miracle are working to bring higher educational opportunities to the citizens of Lincoln County.
I have been in contact with such an institution of higher learning striving to attract the organization to the community. These community leaders are partnering with Lincoln County School District Superintendent, Dr. Teresa Wallace and Richard Kazsuk, Principal of the Lincoln County Area Technology Center.
Judge Gilbert states: "We need to continue the educational opportunities for our young people and our adults in this day and time. An educated workforce is important in attracting new business to our county and retaining the businesses and industries we now have." Judge Executive Gilbert is also the Chairman of the 17-county Bluegrass Area Development District that assists with economic development in Lincoln County.
Judge Gilbert has seen the results of higher education throughout the district.
