FRANKFORT, Ky. — David Scott of Morehead has joined the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) as an outreach counselor. He will travel the state with KHEAA’s College Info Road Show.
The Road Show is a mobile classroom equipped with wireless Internet access. Scott will visit schools, adult education centers and other sites to help Kentuckians learn about their higher education options.
“I am very excited about joining KHEAA’s efforts to help the citizens of Kentucky maximize the resources available to them in achieving their personal and educational goals,” he said.
Scott, a native of Olive Hill, brings a varied background to his new position. He worked with young people as an employee of the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice and as a special education teacher. He has also driven a tractor-trailer, which will serve him well as the Road Show counselor.
