Artist Cassie Davenport and Master Welder Winston Keltner chatted before the hearing Tuesday night, December 10, 2013, on the new Lake Cumberland Technology satellite campus public hearing was held. Davenport told the audience about having a welder-father who helped her get a start in the craft, but wishes that she could have also had classes available in high school or at the University of Kentucky to learn the craft.

Winston Keltner, right told the audience of his excitement that welding classes will be readily at hand for Adair County students, how he'd had to travel - sometimes out of state - to obtain training essential to his livelihood.
