Three Franklin County residents are among 55 Leadership Kentucky participants from across the state chosen for the six-month program.

David Carpenter, with Japan/America Society of Kentucky; Wendy Kobler, of Kentucky State University; and Kelly Wolf, representing the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, were selected as class members.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Leadership Kentucky, a six-month program composed of seven three-day sessions where participants learn about the state’s challenges, opportunities and resources and meet current leaders.

The class will meet for the sessions — ranging in topics from business and economic development, arts and tourism, natural resources and the environment, education, health care, agriculture and government — in cities throughout Kentucky, including Berea this month; Louisville in July; Madisonville/Eddyville in August; Somerset in September; Bowling Green/Fort Campbell in October; Ashland in November; and Lexington/Frankfort in December.

Nominations and applications for the Leadership Kentucky 2020 class will be available online at leadershipky.org in October.
