HARRODSBURG, Ky. – Campbellsville University hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Farmers National Bank Community Walking Trail at the Conover Education Center May 24.
“Where we are today, is not where we will be tomorrow,” Wes Carter, regional director for development and church outreach, said.
“It has taken far more than just the collective efforts of Campbellsville University and its staff. It has taken a community, individual clubs, state representatives, senators and Farmers National Bank, who believe in us and in our mission.”
The community walking trail circles around the Conover Education Center at 1150 Danville Road, Harrodsburg.
“Congratulations to Campbellsville University on the amazing success in such a short period of time,” Greg Caudill, CEO of Farmers National Bank, said.
Blake Shewmaker, assistant vice president of Farmers National Bank with other Farmers National Bank employees, joined Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University, for the official ribbon cutting.
Conover Education Center is on the initial stage for the property expansion with a new building in the near future, Carter said, with construction beginning in about four-six weeks.
Caudill said Campbellsville University will help this region to grow by providing valuable education in Harrodsburg.
“We are very pleased to be here at Mercer County. According to our demographic analysis, we have students studying here from seven different counties,” Dr. Michael V. Carter said.
Wes Carter gave special thanks to the Harrodsburg Rotary Club for their support of the Conover Education Center.
Father Al Degiacomo of Saint Andrews Catholic Church ended the ceremony with a closing prayer.
