In his commencement address, Kentucky Hall of Fame Journalist and Host of KET’s Kentucky Tonight, Bill Goodman, shared insights from his many years of experience of seeing others become successful through unconventional means.

“Try the other side of the boat,” said Goodman while referencing a parable from John. “Do something different, get out of your comfort zone and don’t be afraid of fear.”

Goodman received an honorary doctorate from the college’s faculty and board of trustees. Also receiving an honorary doctorate was Kentucky health education advocate and tennis ambassador Henry Baughman.
