The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host a “Food for Thought” luncheon program, “Pine Mountain Settlement School,” with Nancy Adams, executive director, and James Greene, Harlan Independent school district curriculum supervisor, March 20, at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort.

Located in the mountains of Appalachia in southeastern Kentucky, Pine Mountain Settlement School was an early source of education for the mountain youth of the area, offering a hands-on approach to education that continues to be a model for today’s schools. Join Adams and Greene as they discuss the important role this school has played in the community.

Tickets to the Food for Thought luncheon are $20 for KHS members and $25 for other patrons. To make a reservation, contact Julia Curry at (502) 564-1792, ext. 4414. Reservations are required by Friday, March 15.
