Some of you have been aware of some conversations taking place between Commissioner of Agriculture Comer and myself to fill the vacancy left in the State Apiarist position when Sean Burgess resigned, effective April 30th.
Although I recommended two highly-qualified people to the Commissioner, I was invited to submit my application, and I have accepted the position of State Apiarist, effective June 01, 2014.
Because EKU will be hosting EAS this summer and an ongoing Steele-Reese grant, Commissioner Comer and EKU-CEDET have agreed to let me maintain my office at the university for the immediate future.
My assistant Randy Rosbrook will maintain the responsibilities of Coal Country Beeworks for the immediate future. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org (email in the URL).
My email will remain the same for the next four months.
I just wanted to get ahead of the curve a bit by sharing the news that the press release will happen today and also to say, nothing much will change if you need to contact me. I'm available at this same email address and my cell is still the best way to reach me.
I am looking forward to continuing the goals of both Sean Burgess and Phil Craft as well as working for all the KY beekeepers. It's a privilege to serve.
