Rocky Adkins renews his call for free tuition to community and technical colleges in KY


Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rocky Adkins said if elected governor he would offer free educations for Kentucky students at community and technical colleges across the state.

During a press event and tour at Ashland Community and Technical College last Friday, he cited ACTC as a perfect example of an institution that can offer advanced training for students looking to find good paying jobs in the new economy. Adkins said the program would be similar to ones offered in 17 other states and the goal would be to “train the work force of the future, to educate the workforce of the future.”

Adkins said students coming out of high school in Kentucky would be required to maintain a certain grade point average to qualify for the program.
