Signs for university taken down from interstate

Three signs directing people to Mid-Continent University came down on Monday. That included the sign on I-24 in Paducah.

Local 6 spoke to Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. He told us the central staff office in Frankfort ordered them taken down, but usually the business requests they come down.

We then spoke with Mid-Continent Board of Trustee member Tom Butler. He says, as far as he knows, they did not request the signs to come down.

We also asked him about the status of their search for an acting president. Tom Walden resigned effective last week.

Butler says the board’s search is still in its early stages.
