Although historically considered by some only a “basketball” school, through the leadership and investment of Mitch Barnhart and his 15 by 15 by 15 Plan, this myth has been thoroughly debunked. This ambitious blueprint which began in 2008 set forth the vision that Kentucky would rank in the nation’s top 15 athletic programs and win 15 conference or national championships by 2015, all the while also setting a goal of a 3.0 composite GPA for all student-athletes and an even greater commitment to community service. It is no surprise as all of his goals were exceeded by 2015, that last May he was named the Division I Athletic Director of the Year.
The University of Kentucky and the community of Lexington have certainly been the benefactors of Mitch Barnhart’s tenure as Athletic Director. Please join us as he provides an update on the state of athletics at the University of Kentucky.
