A reception honoring Dr. W. Bruce Ayers will be held Tuesday, June 25, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the lobby of Newman Hall on the Cumberland campus of Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College. The event is sponsored by the Tri-City Chamber of Commerce.
Ayers will retire at the end of month after a 44- year career at SKCTC where he has served as professor, program coordinator and, for the last 26 years, president.
Under Ayers’ watch, the college has grown to include five, full-service campuses with an enrollment of over 5,000 students.
The college has sites in Cumberland, Harlan, Whitesburg, Pineville and Middlesboro.
Ayers also served the Tri-City Chamber of Commerce as its executive director.
