A call center company is opening a center in southern Kentucky that will bring 222 new full-time jobs to the state.
Gov. Steve Beshear and U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers announced the plans by Senture Connect to open a center in Wayne County. A statement from the governor says the company will be investing $7.9 million in the project.
