While the education reform package is designed primarily for elementary and secondary education, higher education fared well, and more importantly the University of Kentucky fared well. He stated that the Board needs to display its appreciation for the statesmanship and leadership that Governor Wilkinson and the General Assembly displayed in forging the document implementing the financing for Governor Wilkinson's educational reform package. He made a motion that a resolution commending Governor Wilkinson and the General Assembl.y be prepared and sent to them at an early date to show the University's appreciation of their efforts. The motion, seconded by Mrs. Hayes, carried unanimously.
