Kentucky education officials say high schools students, parents and school employees are among those invited to join a Facebook Live event today to learn about the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship. The state Department of Education says the event will be at 1 p.m. EDT today (Tuesday, July 24, 2018). Department officials say a panel will discuss the scholarship, including eligibility, how to apply and what it covers. People interested can visit facebook.com/helpwantedky to watch the live stream and submit questions. Gov. Matt Bevin recently signed an executive order expanding the scholarship to eligible students enrolled in certificate, diploma and associate of applied science degrees in one of the state’s top five high-demand workforce sectors. Those sectors are advanced manufacturing, business and IT, construction trades, health care and transportation and logistics.
