Creating a Future in Appalachia. Together.
The 2019 SOAR Summit was a huge success! More than 1,300 people attended this year’s Summit and over 90 businesses and organizations showcased projects and outcomes aligned with our Blueprint for the Future of Appalachia. This was possible because of our valued partners and Summit sponsors.
We would like to extend our gratitude to SOAR Principal Officers Congressman Hal Rogers and Governor Matt Bevin, as well as our speakers at the Summit: Major Dan Rooney, SOAR Executive Board Chair Kim McCann, University of Kentucky President Dr. Eli Capilouto, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles, USDA Rural Development State Director Hilda Legg, Kentucky Communications Network Authority Interim Executive Director Deck Decker, and Pikeville Medical Center CEO Donovan Blackburn.
