Along with Big Sandy Community and Technical College, SOAR is launching a new campaign, There is a Future. As a SOAR partner, BSCTC supports the affirmation that “Appalachia Kentucky is on the move.” The campaign looks to construct a new narrative of value, hope, and opportunity for the region. Dr. Sherry Zylka, President and CEO of BSCTC, said they are proud to offer training and entrepreneurship opportunities to help grow the region. The school is continuing to offer new educational opportunities and training to the region. Major construction of the state’s first Advanced Technology Center began earlier this year at the Pikeville Campus. Once complete, BSCTC will be able to offer a new Associate of Applied Science degree program with degree track options in various broadband fields.
