Churches across Kentucky are gearing up for Super Sunday.

Super Sunday is an annual recruitment event specifically targeting African American students and their families, with information for college enrollment. On Sunday, February 24th, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System and its 16 colleges are pairing up with churches to college information fairs. At each church there will be a worship service about the value of higher education. After, representatives from the colleges will be available to share information about the college planning process. Risa Richardson, an advocate of higher education said church is a great place to get the college message across.

"I think it's wonderful, a lot of times colleges are places where people learn things, it's where they experience things, where their family has gone for years and if they can hear that from people who give them spiritual guidance and advice then they understand how important it is," said Richardson.

More than 4,000 people participated in Super Sunday last year.

Churches may be a great place to get the College message across but from the number of Beer cans I picked up and threw down the trash chutes at Georgetown College, the Great Liberal Institue below the house it aint a great place to get the Church message across. I'll take a lie detector test that I picked up more than a few. But if you get TV camera's to show up the kids will pick them up themselves. Be sure you call to tell 'em your coming to give them time. That was funny. Don't know which local channel it was though that saw a beerless campus. Should of returned after the weekend on Monday morning.
