Two Kentucky 'First Ladies' meet for graduate summit at Murray State

Murray, KY – In 2008 more than 6000 Kentucky students dropped out of high school. Those numbers struck a chord in First Lady Jane Beshear and educators across the state. Now, Beshear and the Kentucky Department of Education are working with groups across the state to further a "Graduate Kentucky" initiative. In Murray, MSU's office of Regional Stewardship is getting involved with help from MSU first Lady, Dr. Ronda Dunn. The Regional Stewardship office and Dr. Dunn are hosting Jane Beshear and droves of educators and community members for a February 18th summit at Murray State. Chad Lampe speaks with Dr. Dunn about the event.
