The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority will start eight children on the road to college savings by opening accounts for them with initial $1,000 deposits. The children are the winners of a summer reading program sponsored by the KHEAA and the state Department for Library and Archives.
They will be honored at a ceremony Monday in Frankfort in the Capitol Rotunda.
In addition to the young readers, the libraries where they borrowed the books will also be winners. The libraries will each receive $500.
September is College Savings Month in Kentucky.
A news release from KHEAA did not reveal the names of the winners.
