Teachers like James Wampler, a science instructor and 2016 PBS Digital Innovator, often make use of KET resources to enhance their classroom experience. “When we do our unit on DNA, chromosomes and alleles, I am able to pull up a lesson on PBS LearningMedia,” said Wampler. “It’s quick and it starts the fire for learning.”

“I know that the resources I’m getting from PBS are credible and safe for students,” said Northern. “It’s my go-to place.” Outside of the classroom, KET welcomed more than 3,000 students and teachers to workshops at KET’s Media Lab during the 2016-17 school year thanks to a travel grant from the Kentucky Department of Education. Plus, KET Education Consultants held regional teacher trainings in media arts, conducted its annual Multimedia Professional Development Day and visited 729 schools across the Commonwealth.

In addition to helping high school dropouts pass the GED test, KET is working in numerous ways to improve workplace readiness and job skills. In 2017, KET convened a task force of 15 business, industry and government representatives from across the state to identify the most critical skills needed by employers for entry-level, non-supervisory positions. The findings are helping inform KET’s efforts to provide relevant workplace training and curriculum materials. * Source: Arroyo Research Services independent evaluation of users with complete GED® test results, 2016

IN THE COMMUNITY. FOR THE COMMUNITY. JOURNEY TO RECOVERY: INSIDE OPIOID ADDICTION The opioid epidemic is a major health crisis in Kentucky. Continuing with an intense, multi-platform look at the epidemic, KET premiered Journey to Recovery, which goes beyond the headlines to meet the people affected by drug addiction as well as top treatment experts fighting on the front lines. Today, the documentary is being used as part of treatment and recovery efforts across the state.

KENTUCKY VETERANS OF THE VIETNAM WAR: IN THEIR OWN WORDS Featuring first-hand accounts from Kentucky veterans of the Vietnam War, this evocative and emotional documentary – featuring more than 65 veterans – captured and preserved the personal stories of veterans recounting their war experiences. It followed previous documentaries in the series that showcased interviews with veterans of WWII and the Korean War.

FORGOTTEN FAME – THE MARION MILEY STORY Lexington’s Marion Miley was a childhood golf prodigy who was propelled to international celebrity as a young adult winning numerous golf championships in the years preceding the formation of the LPGA. But it all came to a tragic end when burglars killed her on the eve of America’s involvement in WWII. She was a pioneer in women’s athletics, yet her achievements got lost in the sensational nature of her murder and the attention of a nation turning to war. 14

REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY


ARTS & CULTURE KET showcased our state’s vibrant arts scene and shared stories from our history and heritage. American Spiritual Ensemble gave viewers a front-row seat to a joyful performance of classic spirituals, jazz, Broadway show tunes and more. The Hilltoppers looked back at a magical time when TV was new, juke boxes were all the rage and four Kentucky singers were at the top of the charts. Plus, Kentucky Life, The Local Traveler and Kentucky Collectibles introduced viewers to more of the people, places and things that enrich Kentucky’s story.

HEALTH In addition to a focus on the opioid crisis, KET explored a variety of health-related topics on the weekly Kentucky Health series, while Health Three60 featured specials on pain management without addiction — with continued support from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.

PUBLIC AFFAIRS Kentuckians count on KET’s public affairs programming to stay informed and gain a greater understanding of the issues facing our state and nation. Kentucky Tonight, Comment on Kentucky and Connections with Renee Shaw delivered weekly insights and analysis, while live legislative coverage and nightly recaps ensured citizens had unparalleled access to the legislative process.
