FRANKFORT (AP) - A conference geared toward helping minority students get into the college of their choice is scheduled for June at Eastern Kentucky University.
The Council on Postsecondary Education is accepting registrations for the event, which will be held June 28-29. It will be the council's 26th year for the Academically Proficient High School Junior and Senior Diversity Conference.
