Graduate Kentucky, a summit held in September 2009 in Frankfort, brought together educational leaders from around to discuss dropout prevention. The Web site lists facts and figures on the state’s high-school dropout rate and offers resources for students, parents, schools, communities, and businesses who want to make a difference for the better.
The first lady’s Web site also has information about her efforts to promote tourism and her work with Horses and Hope, an initiative with the Kentucky Cancer Program and the state’s equine industry to promote breast-cancer awareness and screening.
