This is interesting … a private sector group led by Alltech founder Dr. Pearse Lyons and media mogul Jim Host appears to be heading an independent jobs-creation effort.
And somebody needs to do it, because Kentucky officials have their hands full just straightening out the Medicaid managed care meltdown.
Anyway, Alltech is hosting a free seminar in Lexington tomorrow, tomorrow, Tuesday, May 22.
Lyons and Host, who built a sports communications business before he got sucked into the Arena Authority, will discuss how Kentucky can cultivate jobs and drive change, whatever that means.
And for a sweetner, “a special announcement in conjunction with the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville and University of Pikeville will be made at approximately 3:30 p.m.,” according to a news release.
We’re guessing Lyons, who has more money that God, will fund the scheme to bring the private Pikeville school into the Kentucky public system, the first school to be added since U of L back in 1970. Or at least fund the advertised econ-dev competition to make it possible. We’ll see ….
See the video about the event here.
The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Thoroughbread Ballroom at the Lexington Convention Center.
The event is being held in conjunction with the Alltech 28th Annual International Symposium. For more information about this event, visit the alltech.com/symposium web page here.
