PAINTSVILLE (March 2, 2011) – The Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) Adult Education Program was recognized and honored by First Lady, Jane Beshear Tuesday March 1, 2011 on the BSCTC Mayo Campus.  The event took place in the Mayo Adult Education Program room.

Kentucky Adult Education (KAE) programs must meet and exceed enrollment and performance guidelines set forth by the counties in which they reside.  By exceeding the goals for Johnson County, the Mayo Adult Education Program has received numerous awards and honors establishing it as an esteemed Program.

The BSCTC Mayo Adult Education Program is directed by Associate Professor, Jennifer Leedy, of Louisa.  The Program continuously exceeds enrollment and performance goals in areas such as beginning adult education, low adult intermediate education, high adult intermediate education, low adult secondary education, and the transition to post-secondary education, and GED attainment.

Director, Jennifer Leedy commented, “We are honored to have our Program recognized.  Our Program success is due to the dedication and devotion of our staff and the individualized focus we place on student needs and goals.”  Mrs. Leedy noted education and training as the most prevalent needs of traditional and non-traditional students. She also stated that recruitment and program funding are principal obstacles facing educational institutions today.

Diane Lafferty, a member of the Adult Education Staff,  remarked  “We take great pride in the success and achievements of our students.”

Now that February 28th through March 4th is officially “Kentucky Literacy Week,” the Governor and First Lady will recognize it each year by celebrating and recognizing the accomplishments of successful programs while focusing on the challenges and problems educational institutions face.

FRANKFORT --  The Workforce Opportunity Project has announced its research results from interviews with 100 Eastern Kentucky employers. Twenty three counties were represented in the interviews which were intended to "to identify the key job skills, personal traits, and education employers require in workers to fill current jobs and future jobs where growth is expected," according to their Executive Summary.

Of the employers surveyed, 68% indicated that they would be hiring for at least one new position in the next five years. Employers in the healthcare sector were more likely to say they would increase employment.

Ten job skills were identified as being critical for current jobs by 90% or more of the interviewed employers: verbal ability; make decisions; mathematical computation; maintains confidentiality; follow instructions; delegate; works well with team; reading comprehension; time management. Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program, a non-profit workforce development agency that has been in the region since 1968, sponsored the research. The study also included open-ended questions to the employers about economic development, education, training, and leadership.
