Chad Phillips, Gatton Academy Assistant Director of Admissions and External Relations, says the celebration will honor students, educators, business leaders, government officials and other individuals who have helped to ensure the success of the academy.
He told WKU Public Radio, "its a celebration for the whole Western community and the state, as well. "
