PADUCAH, Ky. - The news is great for future college graduates, new data collected by the National Association of Colleges and Employers shows employers plan to hire nearly 20 percent more graduates this year. "I love it; anything I can get my hands dirty with is a bonus" said college student Bryan Atkins.
Hands down Atkins is a car guy "its fun to play around with something like this." Atkins and other University of the Kentucky engineering students at the Paducah campus are spending their spring break working on a Baja Car. "It's a lot of hard work, but it makes me very excited to get to put into practice what we've been through" he said.
