Box takes reins as KCTCS president

VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) — Jay Box has officially taken over as president of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.

Box will oversee a statewide system of 16 colleges. He says the college system’s goal is to help students achieve their dreams and to help supply a college-educated workforce to fill the needs of business and industry in Kentucky.

KCTCS Board of Regents Chairman P.G. Peeples says Box has a strong background that includes stints as a faculty member, college president and KCTCS chancellor.

The KCTCS Board of Regents approved a presidential contract that includes an annual salary of $345,000 and a $24,000 car allowance. Officials say the package does not include any deferred compensation, housing allowance or performance bonus.
