NKU leaders to travel around state

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) - Leaders at Northern Kentucky University say they plan to travel around the state in an effort to spread the word about what makes the school special.

According to the Kentucky Enquirer, NKU President Geoff Mearns says leaders want to change the school's description as a "hidden gem" and the area's "best kept secret."

Mearns and other leaders at the school plan to travel to seven regions of the state from Sept. 29 through the end of the year. Each visit will last several days and include meetings with community and education leaders as well as high school and community college students.

Mearns said goal is to tell everyone they meet about the benefits that NKU has to offer.
