Kentucky's Governor, Matt Bevin, wants all Kentucky high school graduates to leave with at least nine hours of college credit. The announcement came from Gov. Bevin and Workforce Development Secretary, Hal Heiner, at a recent visit to Russell County High School. The Kentucky Dual Credit Scholarship Program will provide $15 million over the next 2 years for any high school student to earn dual credit at no cost to students. Eligible dual credit courses include general education classes, and career and tech education courses that are in a state-approved career pathway leading to an industry-recognized credential. The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) is committing $600,000 to the scholarship program.
