Kentucky Community Colleges Going to Church to Recruit Minority Students

On Sunday February 12 the Kentucky Community and Technical College System is holding a Super Sunday event in conjunction with churches with large minority congregations. At church services that day, pastors will discuss the importance of higher education and information will be available to church members about the 16 colleges that make up the system.

The effort is patterned after a similar program operated by the California State University System. That effort began in 2005 with 23 churches but has since expanded to more than 100 churches.
