New road signs recognize Black college, university

Officials say new road signs are being installed to recognize Kentucky’s two historically Black colleges and universities. Gov. Andy Beshear joined local leaders and higher education officials on Wednesday at Simmons College in Louisville to announce the signs recognizing that institution and Kentucky State University in Frankfort. Officials said contractors will begin installing five signs this week. Three signs in Louisville will recognize Historic Simmons College and two in Frankfort will recognize Kentucky State University. Beshear says the signs will elevate awareness about the historic significance of the institutions in Kentucky.
