Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Secretary Hal Heiner announced his resignation Monday to accept an appointment as a member of the Kentucky Board of Education.
Heiner issued a statement saying, “Kentucky has made incredible strides in the areas of workforce readiness and education during these last two-and-a-half years, and I am confident that that gains will continue to be made. There is, however, work still to be done, and I look forward to focusing my time and energy on students at the elementary and secondary levels as a member of the Board of Education.”
Governor Matt Bevin also reappointed Ben Cundiff of Cadiz to the state Board of Education. Cundiff has been the owner/operator of Cundiff Farms since 1967, was a practicing attorney from 1973-1991, and served as chairman and CEO of Trigg County Farmers Bank from 1991-2000.
