On Wednesday, June 15, 2022, the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels awarded RADIOLEX a grant to purchase community reporter field kits for our Community News Room.

The Kentucky Colonels awarded 314 grants this year totaling $3.1 million and impacting more than 3.9 million Kentuckians. Grants are made possible through donations from contributing Kentucky Colonels from throughout the Commonwealth and around the world who chose to exercise this honor in a meaningful way.

According to Commanding General Gary Boschert: “The year 2021, early 2022 was a challenging year and the Kentucky Colonels stepped up to the challenges. Through extremely generous individuals we were able to increase our regular grant impact for the Good Works Program by over $1,000,000.00. This year we are awarding 3.1 million dollars, the most money we have ever been able to spend on the program. In response to the horrible storms that devastated Western Kentucky, Colonels stepped up and donated millions of dollars and we are able to grant 3.7 million for the long-term recovery of the region. Thank you, Colonels, for your generosity and continued support. Your help allows all the Trustees to help impact millions of Kentuckians.”
