The Sustainability Committee on the Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College Cumberland campus recently dedicated a tree to honor Dr. W. Bruce Ayers, the college’s president who is to retire from his post June 30. He was honored for his years of service and for his zeal to preserve the history and culture of the region.

Sustainability Committee member Larry Lafollette had this to say about the tree planting "The contributions made by Dr. Ayers to the preservation of the history and culture of Southeast Kentucky, his extraordinary legacy of service to our college and his concern for people this area bespeaks more than any words of the true meaning of sustainability".
