Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and the Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence (KCADV) announced a new collaboration to provide economic empowerment services and support to low-income parents.
On October 8, about 30 students of the Bluegrass Community and Technical College’s North American Racing Academy (BCTC-NARA) and the Locust Trace Agriscience Center (LTAC) were invited to ask questions about how to get started in the horse racing world from one of the top jockeys in the nation, Rosie Napravnik.
Despite Tuesday’s gloomy weather, the inside of the Newtown Campus Classroom Building at Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) was vibrant with hundreds of high school students learning about routes to a bright future.
BCTC has received a Title III Strengthening Institutions grant from the U.S. Department of Education for almost $2.3 million, or about $450,000 annually, to be distributed over a 5-year period.
BCTC celebrated its 75th Anniversary and officially dedicated its Newtown Campus on Thursday, September 4, 2014 with a community event that celebrated the past and future of the institution.
As BCTC wraps up its 9th Latino Leadership and College Experience Camp (LLCEC) this year, the success of the program is evident by the number of former participants volunteering to help new campers find the same support they did.
Forty-one students started BCTC’s Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) program in July, making 2014 the largest incoming class since the program began in Fall 2010. This rigorous program requires students to be college ready when they enter the program and prepared to meet standards of professional behavior.
