Episode 34: Raising Hope to Drive the Economy in Eastern Kentucky



In our first episode recorded virtually since the COVID-19 outbreak, host Trish Adams talks with Dr. Melissa Newman, executive director of Regional Programming & Regional Stewardship at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU), about raising hope in the region to drive our economy and how a positive self-image as Eastern Kentuckians can change the conversation about our future. Newman also touches on some projects students can work on during this time of quarantine to not only educate themselves bot to also boost their hope for their future in the mountains. This episode was recorded via Zoom conference call due to the state and federal regulations regarding social distancing during the recent COVID-19 pandemic.To learn more about EKCEP's mission to prepare, advance, and expand the workforce of Eastern Kentucky, log on to https://www.ekcep.org.Intro music from https://filmmusic.io"Sweeter Vermouth" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0
