Courtesy of Hazard Community & Technical College Hazard Community & Technical College representatives met at the state capitol in Frankfort on Feb. 18 with 29th District Sen. Johnny Ray Turner who serves Harlan, Knott and Letcher counties. From left are HCTC’s Doug Fraley, Sen. Turner, HCTC Interim President Dr. Juston Pate, and HCTC Business Champion Stephen Bowling. They spoke to the senator about the impact of state budget reductions of $39 million since 2008 with the Kentucky Community & Technical College System (KCTCS). They talked about the need to achieve the governor’s goal of addressing the Commonwealth’s need for highly skilled workers that meet the changing workplace demands of employers. HCTC Interim President Dr. Juston Pate, a graduate of Harlan High School, noted, “The KCTCS state appropriation should be increased, not reduced. Our mission is too important to the lives of the people in eastern Kentucky to face a reduction in services.” The visit was part of the KCTCS Fuel the Force.
