FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) - Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Secretary Hal Heiner announced his resignation as Secretary of the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet today to accept an appointment as a member of the Kentucky Board of Education.  

“I am grateful for Sec. Heiner’s skilled and selfless leadership of the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet over these past two and a half years,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “He has overseen a pivotal time of transformation, as we strengthen Kentucky’s education system and modernize workforce training. I appreciate his willingness to continue serving Kentucky in a less time-intensive, but very important role as a member of the state Board of Education. In his new role, I am confident he will work to ensure that every K-12 student in the Commonwealth has the best possible opportunity for success.”

“It has been a highlight of my career to serve as Secretary of the Education and Workforce Cabinet,” said Heiner.  “Kentucky has made incredible strides in the areas of workforce readiness and education during these last two-and-a-half years, and I am confident that that gains will continue to be made.  There is, however, work still to be done, and I look forward to focusing my time and energy on students at the elementary and secondary levels as a member of the Board of Education.  Test scores and other academic achievement indicators must be improved across the state, and I look forward to working with the Board to provide all Kentucky students, regardless of wealth or zip code, with educational opportunities designed to meet their specialized learning needs and prepare them for success in college and careers.”

Heiner’s resignation as cabinet secretary is effective immediately. His appointment to the Kentucky Board of Education was announced earlier today. 

Heiner is a longtime Kentucky civic leader and education advocate. He has served as a vice chair of Greater Louisville, Inc. In 2002, he was elected to the Louisville Metro Council where he spent eight years focusing on finding efficiencies in services, government transparency and innovative ways for the community to grow and prosper.
