​Billie Jean Cole, associate dean of student affairs at Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC), and Keithen McKenzie, BSCTC associate dean of academic affairs with technical programs, often go to the Belfry Area Technology Center (ATC) to discuss postsecondary options with students and how to make a smooth transition into the community college system.

Cole said having a working relationship with ATCs and career and technical centers (CTC) is important.
"If our students are going to have the opportunities that we want them to have in the state of Kentucky, this partnership is vital," she said. "It’s important to have a dialogue with the principals weekly or monthly so we are working to have all the opportunities in place for the students."
