J. David Porter, Kentucky Bar Foundation immediate past president, presents a check to Ron Damron, UPIKE director of planned giving, during the Kentucky Bar Foundation Fellows & Partners for Justice Society Luncheon held recently in Lexington.
The University of Pikeville has received funding from the Kentucky Bar Foundation to support a judicial speaker series. By engaging students as well as the campus and local communities on issues surrounding the judicial system, UPIKE will continue meeting its mission to create opportunities for Central Appalachia.
“We are grateful to the Kentucky Bar Foundation for partnering with us to offer a judicial speaker series to our students and the community,” said Tom Hess, Ph.D., dean of UPIKE’s College of Arts and Sciences. “The speaker series serves as a unique way for us to empower our community to gain a better understanding of the judicial system.”
Details of the inaugural judicial speaker series are being finalized and will be announced soon.
