8th Annual Life Fundamental$ Summit a Success!
The 8th Annual Life Fundamental$ Summit hosted by the Kentucky Council on Economic Education (KCEE) was a tremendous success thanks to our sponsors at Brown-Forman, Citizens Union Bank, Class-Act Credit Union, KYCPA, Mainsource Bank, Republic Bank, Sutherland & Associates and UPS. Moreover, the Summit would not have been possible without the support of our partners at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the Jump$tart Coalition. This is particularly true this year as we ventured from a single city Summit model to a multi-city model enabling us to offer professional development throughout the Commonwealth. In addition to hosting the traditional sessions in Louisville, we expanded to Paducah and Corbin through utilizing our network of Center Directors at Murray State University and Eastern Kentucky University. This expanded collaborative effort resulted in a record high in overall attendance of 175 participants including 68 in Louisville, 52 in Paducah and 55 in Corbin. Even more remarkable is the fact that the registrant to attendance ratio was 100%! Once again, the KCEE in collaboration with our sponsors and partners was able to achieve its vision through the realization of its mission by ultimately spreading the message of financial power to the youth of Kentucky.
