In attendance were former Cumberland sports standout Freddie Maggard, Colonel Souleray, two additional National Guard Colonels, Operation Unite President Dan Smoot, Tom Vicini, Rev Arnold Martin, and host of other Harlan County citizens. This is the brain child of Colonel Ralph Souleray . The plan was to locate it in Hazard, or London until he got involved. The ChalleNG Academy is directly responsible for 53 to 55 jobs. These are jobs with benefits, and the pay scale is at state wages.
This is what the Fiscal Court needs to put their resources behind, but they won't because it doesn't benefit them politically or personally. <--- My Opinion.
I don't know Colonel Souleray, but he sounds like a man who should run for a position on the Fiscal Court.
