From the Chairwoman Welcome to All, Over the past 10 years, I have been honored to be a part of the Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, from volunteering with committees and setting up for events to sitting on the Executive Board. I have been blessed to see how the Chamber works and operates from the ground up, to see how many volunteers and man hours it takes to put on events, visit businesses, set up speaking or networking programs, and to promote our communities. This Chamber is a huge part of the exciting growth and changes occurring in Eastern Kentucky during a tough time in our local economy. Each area in our region has strengths and many possibilities, whether it be available property, tourism, retail, medical, educational opportunities or available workforce. The Chamber along with new resources like One East Kentucky, SOAR, and local economic development initiatives, are ensuring that the voices of Eastern Kentucky are heard at state and national levels. Eastern Kentucky is a strong, vibrant region that can bring unique ideas to a larger landscape. If you live in Eastern Kentucky, I encourage you to get involved, not only with the Chamber but with any of our local community initiatives. Everyone has a way to contribute to their community. Take advantage of our active organizations and share your talents, remembering many small contributions make one large movement. Eastern Kentucky needs you, the Chamber needs you. Specifically, the Chamber would welcome your involvement; we offer many opportunities to participate including our Ambassador program, countless committees ranging from planning our Annual Dinner to the Educational Committee that works with our local high school students, to our Board of Directors. All contributions of time and talent are welcome, whether you have only a small amount of time or a large amount of time, your contribution is welcome and needed. I can personally promise you a wonderful reward in seeing positive changes in your neighborhood and our region as a whole. I am blessed AND PROUD to have been born and raised in Johnson County, to have four generations of family from East Kentucky, and to call Eastern Kentucky home. My husband, Matt, is a proud transplant to Eastern Kentucky and I am blessed to have two kids that also love their Eastern Kentucky home and heritage. Home is where the heart is and our hearts belong to Eastern Kentucky.

Jennifer Brown Day SEKC Chairwoman

REGIONAL OVERVIEW Welcome to the mountains! The Southeastern region of Kentucky, encompassing an eight-county spread, is celebrated for its uniquely Appalachian spirit. Each community of the region is distinctly different, though region in its entirety is a valuable tool for defining the greater area is united in some basic commonality. the future and a substantial theme among communities who seek to honor the past while embracing History is of tremendous value to the region and its progress. Tradition is, simply put, an essential part inhabitants.

Pristine waterways are abundant, whether it’s clear, bubbling creeks and streams with colorful rock beds, or calm lake waters. The rivers that intersect with the various counties attract tourists and residents for a host of recreational activities. Undoubtedly, the region is defined by its awe inspiring natural beauty. Innovation is a widespread attribute of the region. Despite years of battling negative press and the stigma associated with the political propaganda surrounding “The War on Poverty” that defined generations of Central Appalachians, Southeastern Kentucky has been a beacon of progress. In 1960, Pikeville’s own Dr. William Hambley envisioned a massive land restructuring. In 1973, Phase 1 of the Pikeville CutThrough Project was underway. More than ten years later, the project was complete. Officially, the Pikeville Cut-Through is recognized as one of the largest civil engineering projects in the Western Hemisphere. Whether it’s rearranging what was once considered an immovable portion of landscape or redefining methods of extracting coal from the perilous mine shafts of yesteryear, the region, and its people are nothing short of innovative. Today, business owners have repurposed land that was relegated to strip mining. In Knott County, mountains that would have never been easily traversable were transformed by strip mining and are now used for riding, hiking and driving trails. Elkhorn City has received international acclaim for whitewater rafting, facilitated, in part, by the reservoir water releases. Perhaps the most uniting feature of the Southeastern Kentucky region is culture. Art, music, and traditional food play a pivotal role in defining the region. Unique to Appalachia, old time music typically combines sounds from acoustic string instruments such as the banjo and fiddle. Festivals, camps and schools have formed to celebrate and perpetuate the unique sound of old time music. Clogging, flat footing and square dancing are traditional dances that accompany the music. A growing number of old-time-music fans from outside the area seek to learn from the remaining masters scattered across the region. Locals are imprinted with the familiar music and many natives are devoted to its preservation. Whether it’s a beautiful, hand stitched quilt, a painted gourd or an intricately carved walking stick, the region is abundant with artistic talent. People from across the area celebrate artistry in its many forms and traditional crafting is encouraged among younger generations. Ripe with talented artists and 10


entertainers, the region is also famous for its traditional foodways. From soup beans and cornbread to “kilt” (or killed) greens, fried catfish, and venison, the region has a distinct standard for locally sourced ingredients and traditional methods of preparation. Bourgeoning new restaurants throughout the region perfect traditional recipes and provide visitors with a uniquely Appalachian taste experience. Traces of this commitment can even be found in local pizzerias, as one features a pie with local honey drizzled on farm fresh goat cheese, garnished with sprigs of local greens. The pizza is named for a local farm that also supplies area farmer’s markets with fresh produce. The greater story of the area is one of grit and determination. Southeastern Kentuckians, tired of having their narrative dictated by speculators, have extended a gracious welcome to anyone interested in experiencing the history, beauty, innovation and culture of the region. The mountains have an allure that defies explanation. Locals will be quick to point out that the insular region has retained so many aspects of the unique culture, thanks, in part, to the seclusion provided by the mountains. As the region becomes more easily navigable, and more visitors seek to experience all the region has to offer, natives are becoming increasingly rooted in tradition and cultural preservation. Southeastern Kentucky’s resources are ubiquitous in their abundance and exclusivity. The experience provided by living in or traveling to the area, simply cannot be replicated anywhere else. On behalf of the entire Southeastern Kentucky region, welcome to the Mountains! EXPERIENCE SOUTHEAST KENTUCKY

Magoffin County is far more than a connection between central Kentucky and the deeper recesses of Appalachia, however. In its own right, the county is a beacon of opportunity and innovation.

The water in Magoffin County is accounted for by the Licking River. Magoffin County experienced the devastation of natural disaster after encountering a tornado in early 2012. Homes and businesses were decimated along the funnel cloud’s path. Thanks in huge part to the resiliency of the region, Magoffin County has recovered. Businesses and homes were rebuilt, debris was cleared and new businesses have been established. Magoffin County’s superior ability to overcome was underscored by the community’s efforts to support one another.

Officially declared a Rail Town in 2015, Royalton boasts the Magoffin portion of the Dawkins Line Rail Trail. Established in the early 1900s, the Dawkins Lumber Company utilized the railroad to transport timber throughout the region and beyond. In roughly 1930, the railroad’s stock was sold for the first time, and ultimately, as the years passed, throughout the country and in Magoffin County, railroad transportation became increasingly obsolete. The abandoned trail was eventually repurposed and the Dawkins Trail is now the largest rail to trail project in the state. The multi-use trail is perfect for walkers, bikers and horseback riders. The expansive trail is beautifully adorned in all seasons, but fall is a particularly spectacular time to visit the attraction. Guests from across the nation have traveled far and wide to experience the Dawkins Line Rail Trail and the national attention has even caught the eye of travel writers and bloggers



who rave about the unique opportunity to encounter the region. Healthcare, education and construction are the leading economic drivers in the Magoffin County area. Retail is also a substantial facet of Magoffin’s industry. The region is an inviting one, ripe with opportunity and incredible accessibility, making it very appealing to prospective businesses. With the ease of commuting from the Mountain Parkway, residents from outlying counties find Magoffin County a reliable option for establishing careers or finding transient work. In Magoffin County, location is everything! Men, women and children are all thankful to call Magoffin County home. Hosting a number of eateries, retail options, and a beautiful landscape, Magoffin County is a wonderful place to live and work. Magoffin’s industry is a prime example of what is possible with a collective interest in historical preservation and forward thinking. Utilizing the area’s natural resources, even repurposing abandoned institutions to create new opportunities, is exemplary of the resilient spirit natives are known for.

Spanning portions of Pike County and neighboring Virginia, the park is home to several attractions including a water park, lodging, campgrounds, mountain climbing, horseback riding, educational events, hiking trails, special events and more. Elkhorn City is perhaps most famous for whitewater rafting, gaining international attention for its impressive opportunities to shoot the rapids. With nearly 250 days a year deemed “boatable” by those in the industry, and multiple class rapids for every skill level, Elkhorn City has firmly established itself in the adventure tourism category. Guests and residents alike also enjoy Artists Collaborative Theater (ACT) in Elkhorn City. A small, community based theater with fantastic productions and talented casts, ACT has attracted the attention of the greater region. Pikeville, the county seat, hosts numerous attractions. Downtown Pikeville, under the direction of the Main Street Program, has been revitalized in recent years. The thriving downtown district features free, weekly events throughout the summer including Main Street Live, which includes live music, food, drinks and shaded seating. Muscle on Main, another program 88


hosted by the city, showcases a cruise-in and thrilling drag races. The Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center plays a significant role in the region, boasting an impressive 7,000-seat arena and providing a venue for national performance artists to entertain. Jenny Wiley Theater opened a comfortable 200-seat main stage theater as an accompaniment to their Prestonsburg amphitheater location. A growing number of shopping and restaurant options continue to thrive in the district. Outside of downtown, Pikeville has embraced adventure tourism in accordance with the greater central Appalachian region. The city’s Zip, Paddle and Saddle attraction combines ziplining through wooded mountains, horseback riding scenic trails with spectacular views and kayaking on the serene Levisa Fork of the Big Sandy River. Home to America’s most famous feud, Pike County also hosts Hatfield and McCoy tours. The centuries old feud made national headlines when members from rival families became embroiled in a violent dispute that spanned decades. The feud has long since ended, but national interest has never waned. A restaurant occupies the former home of patriarch Randall McCoy, and a local graveyard, Dils Cemetery - coincidentally the first integrated cemetery in the area - is where Randall McCoy, his wife, and several family members are laid to rest. The cemetery is open to the public. Driving tours take guests through the history of the feud, including parts of neighboring West Virginia, home of the Hatfields. Healthcare, mining and retail are the leading economic forces in Pike County. Home to Pikeville Medical Center, a state-of-the-art facility that employs more than 3,000 locals, the region continues to diversify. Retail is an ever expanding enterprise as the area continues to gain interest among franchisees and investors looking to capitalize on the region’s impressive growth and development. Pike County embraces its past and present. As the region pays homage to its roots, it simultaneously seeks to better the future of Southeast Kentucky and greater Central Appalachia. A deep respect for heritage and culture is part of the Southeast Kentucky way of life, but innovation is what has allowed the region to survive despite obstacles. The desire to create is deeply embedded in the Appalachian spirit, and that facet of Pike County shines in the entrepreneurial spirit of its inhabitants. EXPERIENCE SOUTHEAST KENTUCKY


Annual Festivals

Hatfield-McCoy Heritage Days Festival The popularity of the Hatfield-McCoy feud, a decades-long blood feud between families living in Pike County and Mingo County, W.Va., following the Civil War, sparked the creation of the Hatfield-McCoy Heritage Days Festival, held Labor Day weekend in downtown Pikeville. This event features something for everybody, including live entertainment, arts and crafts, craft demonstrations, a paintball tournament between the Hatfields and McCoys, the annual “Ruff, Tuff, Cuss” obstacle course race, and other activities.

Hillbilly Days Festival

Apple Blossom Festival

Pike County is home to the state’s second largest festival, the Hillbilly Days Festival, which is held in April in downtown Pikeville.

With more than 300 vendors, this festival features plenty of food, arts, crafts, a large carnival, a parade, a quilt show, activities for children, live music on several stages and, best of all, hundreds of hillbillies, who travel from all over the country just to be a part of it. Hillbilly Days serves as a fundraiser for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children. Shriner hillbillies sell their wares and collect donations that are given to the hospital, and portions of proceeds from vendor booth sales and other activities, like the annual “Run for the Children,” are also donated. It truly is a festival with a heart.

It wouldn’t be spring without the annual Apple Blossom Festival in Elkhorn City. The Whitewater Shrine Club hosts this festival every May to celebrate the community and raise funds for Shriners Hospitals for Children. Visitors can expect to find plenty of live music, inflatables, Shriner train rides, food and craft vendors, a parade, and other activities.

Russell Fork River A designated Kentucky Blue Water Trail, the Russell Fork is what Kentucky Afield Magazine characterized as “one mean, determined stream.” It stretches 16 miles from Haysi, Virginia, to Elkhorn City and offers majestic views of rock formations through Pine Mountain. The river carved a canyon through the mountain that is over five miles long and 1,600 feet deep — the largest canyon east of the Mississippi River. The river, lined with huge boulders, offers some of the most challenging whitewater rapids in the southeastern part of the country. The U.S.A. Wildwater Team Trials have been held on this river several times, bringing kayakers from all over the world to the Breaks Park and Elkhorn City. Whitewater events, including the well-known “Lord of the Fork” race, are held on the Russell Fork every week in October.

Young families love the area and all that it offers. Each county offers uniquely different opportunities and advantages, though it is not uncommon for a person to choose residence in one area and commute to work in a neighboring county. Single people and young or mature couples also find tremendous value in the region. Investment opportunities abound; however, the market for investment property is competitive. Locals and relocators alike have shown a growing interest in rental property. Throughout the region, single family homes, multi-family dwellings, apartment complexes and condos are available for rent. Real estate agents specialize in assisting interested parties in finding the right place to call “home.” Homebuying and selling can be a daunting process, but the collective experience of local real estate agents make the experience a smooth transition.



GROWING A Looking to Kentucky’s past for future development With efforts under way to ignite Eastern Kentucky’s economy through diversification, one tactic garnering attention on both local and statewide levels draws from the state’s agricultural past to shape its future. One project in Pike County is putting Eastern Kentucky at the epicenter of renewal.

Now, Kentucky is one of nine states looking at reintroducing the crop, and the state has reaffirmed its position as a leader in the endeavor, boasting the largest crop to date. Having grown the plant on just 33 acres in 2014, growth has soared, with nearly 13,000 acres planted in 2017. Hemp is now being grown in half of the state’s 120 counties, including Pike, Floyd, Knott, Magoffin and Breathitt counties. While the reintroduction of hemp remains a research project of the state’s universities, Eastern Kentucky is beginning to lead the way. And one company is 112

Logan Corporation Announcement with Governor Bevin

ONE EAST KENTUCKY A Strategy for Success


By Chuck Sexton

In 2014, the International Economic Development Council sent a team to East Kentucky to assist the leadership of the region in developing an economic development plan. The team recommended a professionally staffed regional organization, a new entity, with a primary focus on the recruitment of new industry. They also recommended that the organization be 100% privately funded and located centrally within the nine county region. Howard Benson of National Community Development Services was retained to develop the plan for this organization and assist in finding the appropriate executive with the experience to lead a regional effort of nine counties. An initial plan-of-work was developed to determine necessary funding. In June of 2015, it was announced that Chuck Sexton, a Kentucky native and experienced economic development professional, had been chosen as the President/CEO of One East Kentucky. Sexton immediately relocated to Pikeville and began developing a strategic plan to diversify the “Coal Fields” region of Kentucky.


Economic Development. A phrase that means something different, and a practice that varies, for each of the 20,000 plus communities in the United States that compete in the art of economic diversification. In East Kentucky, the practice of Economic Development had been attempted before, sometimes on a local level, and at other times with assistance from the state. During those times, the coal industry ruled the landscape and in some instances, deterred the location of industry who would need to compete for workers. Fast-forward to today, the coal industry has been decimated by a combination of government regulations on the power industry and a major shift in market conditions due to low-cost natural gas. The result has been more than 10,000 job losses in the Appalachian region of Kentucky with closures of not only mining operations, but the companies who supported them. As the unthinkable approached, the BUILDING THE FOUNDATION Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce brought together a group of regional chamber executives, The first year of One East Kentucky’s existence was business leaders and community-minded individuals devoted to foundation building activities. Funding was of high-importance, as the strategic plan called for to find a solution. 116

aggressive recruitment of industry across the United States and Canada, as well as future international marketing trips, attendance at industry conferences, marketing development, cluster analysis and much more. The most overwhelming need was for a thorough understanding of the laid-off coal mining workforce, and the first large-scale, multi-partner project was initiated. Dubbed East Kentucky Works, the 27-county workforce study conducted by Boyette Strategic Advisors with assistance by EKCEP was an enormous ninemonth undertaking. However, the information from the study was invaluable and provided the road map for subsequent strategies, target industries, national ad campaigns and project identification. The study found that the mining workforce was highly-skilled, mechanically inclined and held a broad range of skillsets easily transferrable to Automotive and Aerospace manufacturing.

REGIONALISM WORKS With a new regional approach and partnerships active, One East Kentucky assisted Logan Corporation with identifying a new facility for their growing manufacturing business, and prevented the company

from leaving the region. Logan Corporation’s new facility reused a vacated manufacturing operation in Salyersville and their staff has grown from 15 to over 70 full-time workers. Logan plans to have 120 employees on staff in the next few years. Working together as a team on a regional level was key to saving this relationship and putting the right deal in place for them to grow. The team that secured their investment included Governor Matt Bevin, the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, Big Sandy Regional Industrial Authority, and the City of Salyersville.

LASER FOCUS Logan Corp’s announcement gave more fuel to the business case being developed by One East Kentucky for other manufacturers to locate in the region. In July of 2016, the organization had begun aggressively recruiting new companies across the country and focused intently on Kentucky’s increasing presence in the Aerospace Industry. Sexton reached out to consultants Robert Ingram and Richard “Tucson” Roberts, who had recently developed a certification program called AeroReady. The certification process

Chuck Sexton

scrutinized a community or region’s ability to attract and retain aviation and aeronautics manufacturers as well as maintenance firms. These industries lined up with many of the uncovered skillsets from East Kentucky Works and were clustered heavily within 250 miles of the region. After a four month study of the nine county region, Ingram and Roberts held a press conference to officially certify One East Kentucky as the first region to obtain AeroReady status. The concentration of skilled workers, available industrial real estate, proximity to the aerospace corridor, regional airports and educational opportunities at Morehead State University’s Space Science Center, Big Sandy and Hazard Community & Technical College, and the newly created East Kentucky Advanced Manufacturing Institute in Paintsville were all critical components to the certification. The consultants recommended that One East Kentucky attend the upcoming Paris Air Show in June of 2017, and so the organization shifted the already planned international recruitment mission to the show at Le Bourget in France and target aerospace executives. EXPERIENCE SOUTHEAST KENTUCKY




With a solid foundation and business case for the region, One East Kentucky was poised to blanket the marketplace with the advantages for new industries to diversify Appalachia, with the message of “Available. Skilled. Workforce” leading the way. One East Kentucky met with over 100 executives face-to-face from August 2016 to June of 2017, filling the pipeline with over 5,000 potential new jobs of companies now considering a location within the region. One East Kentucky also began closely partnering with Ashland Alliance, who also received AeroReady Certification. The two organizations, along with AEP Kentucky Power, created the Aerospace Alliance of East Kentucky to compete with other regions, like the Gulf Coast Alliance.

A massive amount of activity has occurred, with some exciting results so far in the initial five-year strategy. When this process began, it was hard to imagine that just 24 months later, east Kentucky would be in a position to compete for advanced manufacturing jobs at the largest aerospace industry gathering in the world. However, this is only the beginning. The organization has plans to increase the annual private funding amount, currently supported by nearly 40 businesses, in order to implement new efforts for diversification. One East Kentucky’s strategies will continue to grow and keep the team on the road, sharing the business case for new industry to locate in the region with the goal of elevating the communities, businesses, and most importantly, the people of our region.

Soon after, Braidy Industries selected Ashland as the location of their $1.3 billion Aluminum Rolling Mill. Not only would this provide 550 permanent jobs, but CEO of Braidy Industries, Craig Bouchard, was passionate about assisting the further growth of Aerospace in the region. In early June of 2017, Thoroughbred Aviation chose Martin County for their newest maintenance facility. The company performs body work and avionics maintenance on Bell helicopters as well as fixed wing aircraft. With these announcements, the newly formed partnership and the commitment of Governor Matt Bevin, One East Kentucky, Ashland Alliance, AEP Kentucky Power and a team from Braidy Industries descended upon the Paris Air Show in the summer of 2017. For the first time, east Kentucky was sharing its message with an international audience of aerospace executives.

For 20 years the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine (KYCOM) has been keeping the promise it made to improve access to healthcare in Central Appalachia. Since the medical school’s founding in 1997, more than 1,000 alumni are practicing medicine in nearly every state, with 76 percent serving in primary care. The college of medicine has consistently earned national recognition among its peers. KYCOM has earned high marks in rural medicine, ranking seventh among all medical schools in the nation, both D.O. and M.D., in U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 rankings of Best Graduate Schools. The highest-ranking D.O. school, KYCOM ranked 12th in family medicine and second in the percentage of graduates who enter primary care residencies. KYCOM’s mission focuses on producing the highest quality osteopathic physicians to practice primary care in the rural and underserved areas of Central Appalachia and Kentucky. While this does not indicate that all graduates enter primary care specialties, it does mean our curriculum emphasizes primary care education. To further assist in meeting the community’s healthcare needs, KYCOM offers an on-site clinic.

The Kentucky College of Optometry (KYCO) is the only optometry college in Kentucky and reflects UPIKE’s mission of service and our approach to strategic initiatives. Founded on the same model as the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine, KYCO provides eye care for the underserved in Central Appalachia and other rural areas of the country. Kentucky is one of three states that allows optometrists to perform certain surgeries related to primary optometric care in their offices, which helps improve access to vision care in rural populations. In service to the community, KYCO provides free eye screenings in local K-12 schools. The college of optometry provides young adults the opportunity to build their careers close to home and earn their professional degree at the most technologically advanced college of optometry in the country. KYCO is housed in the Health Professions Education Building, 107,000 square feet of state-of-the-art clinical education laboratories, basic science laboratories and primary care operatories. In addition to providing innovative instruction in optometry, KYCO’s curriculum contains a unique leadership component. Courses address leadership in health care, personal and spiritual wellbeing and professional development, giving students valuable tools to succeed professionally and personally.

From the President Dr. Burton J. Webb If the University of Pikeville could focus on only one thing, what would it be? This question haunts my days and causes me to stare, sleepless, at the ceiling at night. There are so many competing priorities that we have as a university - teaching, research, athletics, fundraising, student development, community relations, business creation and fiscal responsibility - just to name a few. I am deeply involved in each of these things. I have been thinking increasingly about institutional priorities and have come to a personal realization. At the center of everything we do is hope. Education is in the business of hope, and hope is embodied in the students we teach. More than anything, the region, our local communities, and parents hope for one thing - they hope our students will be successful. They invest both their money and their time in ensuring that our students will have the best possible chance for achieving success. Their hope must be our goal, or something is seriously misaligned. We dare not fail; the results would be too devastating. Appalachia needs people who have been successfully educated. Every ill that affects us - poverty, diabetes, blindness, unemployment and drug addiction - can be improved as educated students become successful, educated adults. Therefore, we will concentrate all of our efforts on empowering our students to become successful learners and leaders. For it is in the lives of our students that hope is fulfilled.

Three of the college’s campuses (Prestonsburg, Pikeville and Mayo) will serve as distribution points for the Kentucky Information Highway (Kentucky Wired) project. “To create new opportunities for our students, we must remain engaged with employers and prospective employers and be responsive to industry trends and needs.” In January 2017, Big Sandy Community and Technical College launched a business incubator on its Mayo campus, the first of its kind in eastern Kentucky. American Metal Works is a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining company that provides services to industries, including automotive, aerospace, medical device and general manufacturing. The college also has created a Healthcare Fast Path program for local hospitals, allowing for students to earn their credentials as a nurses’ aide, pharmacy technician, phlebotomist, as well as classes in medical coding and medical terminology. According to a recent study by Emsi, a CareerBuilder company, Big Sandy Community and Technical College has a $171.7 million impact on its service area. Big Sandy Community and Technical College represents the merging of Prestonsburg Community College and Mayo Technical School in 2003. Mayo Technical School opened in 1938 and Prestonsburg Community College opened in 1964.

APPALSHOP Celebrating local culture & voices



Founded in 1969, Appalshop brings forth new and often unheard voices and visions from the people of Appalachia and rural communities across America and abroad, demonstrating the power of arts and culture to create meaningful social and economic change. Appalshop presents stories that commercial media doesn’t tell, challenges stereotypes, supports grassroots efforts to achieve justice and equity, and celebrates cultural diversity. Musicians, coal miners, fast-food workers, truck drivers, caretakers, prisoners, community activists, students, teachers, and artists continue to create compelling solutions for a better way of life for their families, their communities, and their country. Appalshop amplifies these voices through a variety of media productions, public presentations and educational projects, including film, video, radio, new media, music, theater, and community exchanges. In the mid-80’s Appalshop, convinced that its mission to let mountain people speak for themselves should be expanded, brought to the airwaves of central Appalachia an incredible new voice, 88.7 WMMT-FM. WMMT’s mission is to be a 24-hour voice of mountain people’s music, culture, and social issues to provide broadcast space for creative expression and community involvement in making radio, and to be an active participant in discussion of public policy that will benefit coalfield communities and the Appalachian region as a whole. Located in the heart of the central Appalachian coalfields, Appalshop houses media production and training facilities in film and video, a community radio station, a 150-seat theater, an art gallery, and a regional archive of over 4,000 hours of film, audio recording, and still images. Appalshop contributes more than $1,500,000 to the local economy each year through salaries and programming. Appalshop was honored to be part of the 2017 Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Top 100 SHAPING THE FUTURE OF CULTURE list! Appalshop is a private, non-profit organization supported with funds from public agencies, foundations, corporations, and many individuals – like you.



years of magic. For the last half-century, Jenny Wiley Theatre has been a bastion for the arts in central Appalachia and has transported audience members from all walks of life to fantastic worlds of which they have only dreamed. We want to take the time to say thank you to our community, which has sponsored and sustained this little gem for so long. Without you, not only would our hard work be impossible, but there would be no reason to do it at all. So, with our heartfelt thanks, we invite you to join us at one (or more!) of our productions this season. Grab some popcorn, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

Jenny Wiley Theatre’s mission is to enhance the quality of life in eastern Kentucky by providing professional theatre and exceptional educational opportunities in the performing arts. For over fifty years, audiences have enjoyed JWT’s staging of Broadway musicals, classic straight plays, and contemporary original dramas. JWT has both a new indoor theatre in Pikeville, and an amphitheatre space located in the beautiful natural surroundings of Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in Prestonsburg. JWT is one of the nation’s leading regional professional theatres. A local amateur theatre group staged JWT’s first musical, South Pacific, in the summer of 1965, creating a staple for culture and arts every year in eastern Kentucky. JWT has since become a year-round professional theatre with the inauguration of the new Pikeville space in 2014. The Jenny Wiley Drama

our upcoming fall 2017 season

Association, formed in 1959, had two goals: first, to preserve mountain culture, and second, to bring mainstream theatre arts, such as musicals, plays, and other performing arts showcases, to central Appalachia. True to its original goals, during the past fifty years, JWT has enriched the local community and drawn in tourists by staging both Broadway-style musicals and regional historical dramas, including the stories of Jenny Wiley, herself, and the infamous Hatfield-McCoy feud endemic to the area. JWDA and the City of Pikeville signed an agreement in 2011 allowing the theatre to grow, bringing a new indoor 200-seat theatre to downtown Pikeville. The Pikeville Mainstage allows JWT to operate year-round, expanding cultural arts opportunities in the area, while maintaining the long-standing tradition of professional productions at the Prestonsburg amphitheatre in the summer. A year-round season provides an abundance of opportunities for local children and teens to develop their talents in the dramatic arts through JWT’s Footlights Youth Theatre program. Through the Footlights yearly Mainstage productions and intensive summer camps, students learn both how to perform, and how to work behind the scenes – abilities that they put to use in open performances for the public. Local youths learn lifelong skills through theatre, such as public speaking, collaboration and teamwork, and self-discipline, which will serve them well on any career path. A nonprofit organization, Jenny Wiley Theatre plans to continue to enrich the community by producing excellent theatre sourced from both local and nation-wide talent, and by providing performing arts education outreach that makes a difference in the lives of area youths and the general populace. We invite you to join us for any of our productions this year, and hope you will continue to count us among your family, just as you have for the past halfcentury. n

Nothing speaks to the start of the summer season like fresh farmers market tomatoes, sliced thick and sprinkled with salt, picked one morning and eaten the next. You can taste the sun in them. They were grown by your neighbors and friends, hand-picked and delivered to your farmers market. Is it really even summer without string beans? Local honey? Peppers and green onions? Your investment in local produce is a donation to economic development. Buying local at your farmers market is more than food. It is a connection to the region’s roots, historically and literally.

I encourage everyone to meet a farmer, buy some fresh produce and put Kentucky Proud on your plate!” Community Farm Alliances Eastern Kentucky “Farm to Table” Coordinator Jann Knappage works with farmers markets on policy, health related issues and economic development. She says the spirit of farmers and producers is incredible. They share ideas and take pride in their communities. “The pride that comes from being in a southeastern Kentucky county or town is pretty prevalent,” said Knappage. “The way folks are producing indicates strong communication and support between the growers. They do not have the easiest landscape to grow in. Coming up with fun, creative ways to garden is pretty impressive.”

Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture, Ryan F. Quarles said, “Farmers markets play a vital economic development role in eastern Kentucky.

Pikeville Farmers Market has existed for nearly ten years, and in September 2016 moved into their new home at 130 Adams Lane in Pikeville. With plenty of parking, a beautiful new pavilion covering the stalls to circumvent too much sun or rain, and a paved area for the vendor booths, this move has brought amazing growth. Pikeville Farmers Market President Joyce Pinson said, “Everybody said that we could never grow a farmers market in Pikeville, but we did.” She’s understandably proud of the ever-evolving scene. Local market favorites include corn, beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, potatoes, lettuce, and herbs. There are baked goods, jams, jellies, and honey and many times crafters have a strong presence at market. Together, the line-up of offerings is a great recipe for success. Pinson said, “We have vendors that produce handmade soap, jellies, local honey, apple butter, apple sauce, a variety of cakes and breads. We offer fresh cornmeal, woodworking, sign painters, stained glass and aprons for sale.

Appalachian Seed Swap Co-Founder Neil Hunt said, “The seed swap connects our market in a special way. When people come and buy our produce, things you cannot find anywhere else, they are tasting a unique part of our Appalachian heritage.”

Letcher County provides Kids Café, a USDA summer feeding site that provides a free nutritious lunch to all kids 18 years old and under. Johnson and Letcher counties are showing substantial growth and are planning to increase vendors and offerings for their market.
