PAINTSVILLE – Bobby McCool, chief institutional officer at Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC), has been named to the governing board of the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS).
McCool’s term will expire in November 2019. He has led the college’s efforts to help restore the McCoy House and restoration of the York House in downtown Pikeville.
“I’m honored to serve in this capacity,” said McCool. “Our part of the state has a rich history and I look forward to working to better integrate the resources of the Kentucky Historical Society with those doing the same work in Eastern Kentucky.”
The board is the policy-setting body for KHS, a state agency that educates and engages the public through Kentucky’s history in order to confront the challenges of the future.
