The Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) recognized Hopkinsville City Administrative Officer Troy Body with a KLC Level II award for Excellence in City Governance. Additionally, KLC presented Mayor Wendell Lynch, Councilmember Natasha Francis, and Councilmember Alethea West Level I awards for Achievement in City Governance.

The recognitions are part of the KLC City Officials Training Center (COTC), a voluntary education program. City officials complete education levels by attending KLC events and submitting outside educational credit from other municipal training.

“The COTC program offers a variety of training that aims to help our city officials grow and develop their skills and leadership,” said KLC Executive Director/CEO J.D. Chaney. “The achievement represented by these awards not only shows the dedication of Hopkinsville city officials but ultimately benefits their citizens with better-informed leaders.”

“The City of Hopkinsville is thrilled to support and promote continuing education among our team members,” responded Mayor Lynch. “By taking advantage of timely KLC and other training, we aim to stay abreast of the latest trends and to remain ready to be of the greatest benefit to the public we serve.”

The Level I Achievement in City Governance award requires a city official to attend 30 hours of approved training with one hour of ethics training.

The Level II Excellence in City Governance award requires a city official to attend 60 hours of approved training with two hours of ethics training.
