2016 Colonels at the Capitol
Eastern Kentucky University has continued to show its commitment to engaging in the legislative process by hosting the third annual Colonels at the Capitol event in Frankfort on Feb. 17, 2016. More than 100 attendees joined EKU at the Capitol including the Board of Regents, President’s Council, President’s Leaders in Action Academy, and members of the Alumni Board. The Richmond Chamber of Commerce brought a crowd of more than 50 local business owners and community members and Model Laboratory Middle School also joined the event with two staff members and six students.
The Colonels at the Capitol agenda included photos on the House Chamber steps, updates and Q&A from state legislators, and the group was recognized in both the House and Senate Chambers. The Richmond Chamber of Commerce also provided a wonderful lunch and hosted an evening reception at the Kentucky History Center.
