VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) – The president of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System has been picked for a new board that will advocate for community colleges at the federal level.
Jay K. Box will serve on the board to be named Reclaiming America’s Middle Class. A release from the community college system says the boards mission is “to rebuild America’s middle class” by increasing student access to community college by lobbying elected officials.
Box says a key issue is advocating for the expansion of Pell Grants for summer classes. He says community colleges are crucial to building a stronger workforce.
