East Kentuckians Are Ready for SOAR

East Kentuckians appear to be plenty ready to create a more diverse and prosperous economy for the people of the region. Over 1,500 have registered to attend the Dec. 9 bi-partisan SOAR meeting in Pikeville where the agenda is sharing ideas for moving the region forward.  WMMT spoke with Justin Maxson, President of MACED and a member of the SOAR Commission, Letcher County’s Economic Development Director Joe DePriest, and Bethany Aslinger, a nineteen year old college student from Harlan County, about their expectations for SOAR.
