Compromise could be worked out for UPIKE's future

A compromise about making the University of Pikeville a public school is being worked out behind the scenes in Frankfort.

The Lexington Herald reports the latest potential plan would use coal severance tax dollars that had been envisioned for UPIKE to fund a new financial aid program for aspiring students in coal-producing counties.

A study by a national consultant on the feasibility of making UPIKE a public school is due on March 15th.
