    EDA director

    Last Thursday’s Industry Day was a “win-win” for students at Harrison ATC Kentucky Tech, HCHS and three local employers.
    E.D. Bullard, Cynthiana 3M and E-Z Pack hosted 15 Kentucky Tech seniors and 83 Harrison County High School seniors to separately showcase their companies as potential places of employment.
    For the students, many got their first taste of what these world-class companies could offer for their career track.

    I believe that you can teach from a win as well as a loss and a win is just better.
    The loss that I was referencing is UConn’s loss to Mississippi State in the Women’s NCAA Tournament.  
    UConn had won 111 straight games and was the odds-on favorite to again win the NCAA tournament title. It took Mississippi State an overtime and a last-second shot to get the job done but they got the job done.
