  • ✪ Clay County Clock Study Part 2: Kids See Impact of Education on UK Visit
  • ✪ Emcee Bobby Richardson | Fancy Farm 2017 | KET


These fourth graders may seem like any other Kentucky kids on a field trip, but to Clay County school leaders, they represent the future of Appalachia. We could be developing the next generation of engineers and scientists right here in the mountains. You have to plant every seed possible in every way that you can. Having UK come in and offer to do research with these students not just to be the test subject but to be a part of the research and to see the research and to interact with it, it’s shown them that there are opportunities, as they get older to do these types of things. That’s why UK researchers behind the Clay County clock study listen to school leaders when planning how to compensate these young scientists. Originally we had thought about rewarding the children monetarily and how we would do that. You know, when I first started talking to (inaudible, 0:58), she said, “bring the children to your campus.” Part of they’re pay, and they did get paid because they are researchers is a gift card to go to the UK bookstore, so that they can purchase something that they will always remember, “I am a researcher, I am a Wildcat.” Their visit started with cheers, and then lots of walking during their first-hand look at UK’s campus. I wanted to come to UK anyway, so I got a tour of it, so I liked it. Well, we’ve been going around from place to place, well, just looking around on some of the sites. It’s pretty nice, it’s really big. It’s a beautiful place. It’s awesome. But this visit went way beyond the heart of campus, as they chatted with President Eli Capilouto. How many of you are here for the first time? Almost everybody. The excitement grew as they ventured into labs where they looked through microscopes, watched a runner move on a machine simulating what it would be like on Mars, and even held a brain. There can be a way to foster that excitement in school and in their classes, that’s great. Research has shown that students begin the process of dropping out, third, fourth, fifth grade. We’ve just stopped that process in the middle. To be able to show this to these kids and to find out, “what do you like? What’re you interested in?” You can do that when you get older. You can make a living of this. And that’s why we exist as a school district. You get to inspire, and to get kids to see there’s a bigger world out there, and they can do anything they want. All they have to do is get that education, graduate college and career ready, and there’s a whole world open to them. The idea is that by eating in Blazer, and walking into residence halls, students will experience life as a college student. It helps me to see what the college students actually do, and for me to get ready. I kind of feel like I’m a college kid. An experience school officials say must begin early. We’ve got to do something to make sure that they have the skills needed, the mindset needed, and from our end as the public school system, we’ve got to start that at an earlier process, then waiting until they’re juniors in high school and taking them on a trip. Organizers say they also need inspiration, something Jill Day hopes to provide. To be able to go back there and just show them, you know what? If I can do this, then you can do this. You know, this is nothing that is limited to me, that if you can go and get your education, and if you wanna come back here, you can do that, you can make a difference in your community. She is the good of the children and the good of the community. She wants to give back to a community that provided so much to her. I am so proud of her. She was a student of mine. The fact that Jill went on to get advanced degrees, and this wonderfully rigorous academic world that UK provides, it's just a good thing. And then for her to turn around and come back to her community to make sure that the next generation of scientists are coming from Clay County. It let's kids see "hey, that's something that I can do, I can be that." Jill did it, I can do it. So what started for Day as a research project in her hometown has resulted in a community partnership where everyone seems to win. Everyone benefitted from this. UK benefitted from the data. For the researchers from UK, a benefit is looking at a rural population. You have to think about the different populations we have in this country and be more inclusive, and so it is very important for us to get into these communities and work with them. I think these efforts are incredibly important. They're incredibly important to advance science, but they're also very, very valuable to contributing to enriching the lives of Kentuckians. There's such a tie between education and the economic development of a region, that Eastern Kentucky has got to up our game in education, and we can't do it alone. We have to have these partners. UK is our school. Because we want to work with it, we want to do things with UK, our kids need to do things with UK, because if they're reaching out to us, and we're opening our doors to them, then they're going to get more kids going to college, more kids coming back to their hometowns and becoming mayors, educated people, educating more people. That's good for UK, it's good for us, and it's good for the state as a whole. I look forward to the day that because of the research from our flagship university, the University of Kentucky, that our folks no longer have to leave. But there is industry; there are jobs, here. A large-scale impact they hope will begin with these kids. And you have to take it one student at a time. And if we change two or three students' lives, we've changed the whole family's life. When they see that there are things that they can do on this campus to get them excited about, hopefully, their education, I just think that's something that we may honestly never know the impact that it has until many years from now. I mean, my really long term goal is that maybe in a few years I'll have one of the Clay County clock kids sitting in my classroom and they'll say, "I remember when you came down, I remember when I got to come to the University of Kentucky and we got to see these labs, we got to see what you do as scientists." Wow that would be beyond, you know, to have that kind of an impact and be able to actually see it happen. That'd be pretty incredible. A dream rooted in community.


Political career

Congressional career

Hubbard served in Congress for 18 years, during which he mounted an unsuccessful primary challenge for governor in 1979.[1]

In 1983, Hubbard was invited to South Korea to attend a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the United States–South Korea Mutual Defense Treaty with three fellow members of Congress, including Larry McDonald and Senator Jesse Helms. Hubbard and Helms planned to meet with McDonald to discuss how to join McDonald on the Korean Air Lines Flight 007. However, as the delays mounted, instead of joining McDonald, Hubbard at the last minute gave up on the trip, canceled his reservations, and accepted a Kentucky speaking engagement. The flight was later shot down by the Soviet Union killing all passengers and crew.[2]


He lost his 1992 re-election bid in the Democratic primary to Thomas Barlow after becoming one of a number of Representatives embroiled in the "Rubbergate" House banking scandal.[3][4][5] After he pleaded guilty to violations of federal campaign finance laws, Hubbard served two years in prison from 1995 to 1997.[6] His wife Carol Brown Hubbard, was convicted of using her husbands' congressional aides to work on her campaign for Congress. Which failed. She was sentenced to five years' probation.[7]

Post-congressional campaigns

In 2006 and 2008, Mr. Hubbard was unsuccessful in attempts to seek election to the Kentucky Senate. He lost by only 58 votes in the 2006 race.[8][9]

Hubbard announced that he was changing his party affiliation to Republican, due to developments in the Democratic Party in recent years.[10]

Legal career

Hubbard graduated from Georgetown College in 1959 and from the University of Louisville law school in 1962. In 1967, he was elected to serve in the Kentucky Senate.[11]

During a grandparent's visitation case, Hubbard mailed a photograph of the opposing counsel and her wife with a homophobic slur written on it. The fallout from that incident resulted in five counts of misconduct including lying under oath about the incident. The Kentucky Supreme Court suspended him from the practice of law for sixty days.[12]
