Webb to head alumni group
MOREHEAD - Sen. Robin L. Webb, D-Grayson, has been named president of the Morehead State University Alumni Association. She will serve for two years.
“It is an honor to be selected to serve as president of the Morehead Alumni Association,” she said. “I am a proud graduate of MSU and am always very supportive of the university. As the alumni president, I will continue to serve as a good steward as well as a positive role model for MSU. I will always be available to support the association and the university and to assist in whatever capacity I am needed to promote the university and to recruit new students.”
She has previously served as vice president of the alumni group.

Beshear names judge-exec
VANCEBURG - Gov. Steve Beshear appointed John Patrick Collins of Vanceburg to the office of Lewis County judge-executive on Thursday.
The office was vacated by Thomas Massie, who resigned effective June 30.
Collins will serve as judge-executive until the November election, when Lewis Countians will choose a new executive. Collins will not run for the seat, so his term will expire in November once the results of the general election are certified.
“The office of the judge-executive is critical to the continuing function and efficiency of a county government, which is why it was important to move quickly to fill this vacancy,” Beshear said. “I am confident that Patrick will serve Lewis County well in the next few months, and will allow the citizens to elect a judge-executive of their choosing this fall.”
Collins is the current deputy judge-executive, and has served as Lewis County Economic Development director for the past two years. He is a graduate of Morehead State University, with a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Louisville.
“I appreciate the opportunity to serve the county where I grew up, and I look forward to working with whoever wins the office of judge-executive to ensure a seamless transition,” Collins said.
Ashland Board of Education, 4:30 p.m. to complete personnel evaluations, followed by regular meeting at 5:30 p.m.
