Lauren Biddle, Executive Director of the Paris-Bourbon County Chamber of Commerce, and City of Millersburg Mayor Lee Hopkins have voiced their support for the project, with Mayor Hopkins noting that he supports and appreciates “the positive exposure and increased visitor headcount” that the project is bringing to the town.’
The campus also includes an entrepreneurship center with programming tailored to provide training and technical assistance to new and expanding hospitality businesses.
