Western Kentucky U’s Ransdell to launch Capstone at Barren County High School

GLASGOW — Barren County Superintendent Bo Matthews announced that Western Kentucky University President Dr. Gary Ransdell will be visiting the high school campus on Sept. 20 at 12 p.m. to sign and officially launch the new Capstone Scholars Program for Barren County High School students.

The partnership will be with WKU’s Ogden College of Science and Engineering.

The Capstone partnership with Barren County will provide as many as 19 college semester hours of credit for its high school students in the area of agriculture and chemistry, according to Superintendent Bo Matthews.

“Once again, Barren County High School is going to have a spotlight shining on it, specific to the partnership that is going to formally be signed between WKU and Barren County Schools,” he said. “It’s going to create this pathway for credentials for our students interested in agribusiness at the postsecondary level, and that is going to a moment in our history book that we’ll certainly reflect on.”

The signing will take place from 12 to 2:30 p.m.

“The preparations are currently being finalized,” he said.

WKU-Glasgow Director Dr. Sally Ray has worked diligently with Matthews in  finalizing the agreement and, in turn, received the necessary support of Ransdell and Dr. Jack Rudolph, department head for the agriculture department.
