Frankfort, KY  (Dec. 5, 2012) – This summer, Georgetown College will be the host site for the inaugural Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs (GSE) and hopefully jumpstart the careers of a new wave of young business leaders in the state of Kentucky. That’s certainly what Gov. Steve Beshear (above center) had in mind when he announced the new program this morning at a press conference in the Capitol building. Beshear also said he hopes the GSE will “dramatically enhance job creation” in the state.

Georgetown President Bill Crouch, left, and Kris Kimel, right, President of the Kentucky Science & Technology Corporation, also gave remarks about this exciting program that is patterned after the very successful Kentucky Governor’s Scholars and the Governor’s School for the Arts. KSTC, which will run the GSE at Georgetown College June 9-29, will soon be taking applications for the 50 spots that will go to Kentucky high school students.
