The Kentucky Section Board hopes that 2018 will be a great year for everyone. First, let me say 'Thank You' to all of those members, sponsors, student volunteers, speakers and exhibitors who helped make our annual meeting a success in November. It was also a great opportunity to hear from and get to know Kristina Swallow, ASCE President 2018. We were also joined by Chuck Black, Region 4 Director, and Bob Cagle, Region 4 At-Large Governor.

I am honored to serve as your Section President for this year.
