Officials with Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce are making their rounds to high schools around the region, talking to seniors about work ethic. This morning, chamber president and CEO Jacob Colley spoke to the senior class at Pikeville High School about participating in the chamber’s work ethic award program. Colley said in addition to competing for four $500 scholarships, the hope is for students to form good habits to carry with them the rest of their lives.
Colley and other Chamber staffers will visit with nearly 1,300 high school seniors over the next couple of weeks in the chamber’s eight-county service area. Seniors will make commitments now to enter the program, which will end with an awards ceremony and scholarship presentations in the spring of 2016.
