ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - Hardin County Schools, Central Kentucky Community Foundation, Elizabethtown Community College and Western Kentucky University are all teaming up to bring an entirely new way of educating their High School students.
The partners will build an early college and career center for students who would like to begin their careers sooner or maintain an early college education.
Lieutenant Governor Jerry Abramson took part in a press conference announcing the new school saying this will bring businesses to Hardin County because they all ask the same question.
He says potential businesses wanting to move to the area tell him, "If we're going to expand a businesses to a community or bring a business to a community that there will be skilled, educated, productive and drug free young men and women."
Superintendent Nanette Johnston said, "For far too long we have not been meeting the needs of our students and our community in the area of specialized technical training and career development."
They hope to have the center open by August of 2014. It will be next to Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. The land was donated by WKU.
