West Kentucky Community president retiring

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) – West Kentucky Community and Technical College President Barbara Veazey is retiring after becoming the school’s founding president in 2003.

Veazey will leave her post in June. She told staff and faculty she was “inspired each day by the brightest, most forward thinking group of individuals.”

West Kentucky CTC enrolls more than 9,000 students in western Kentucky and online.

Veazey was appointed president of Paducah Community College in 2002, and when the school consolidated with West Kentucky Technical College in 2003, Veazey was named its first president.

Kentucky Community and Technical College System President Jay Box will visit the campus later in the month to explain the search process for the next president.
