BSK Celebrates Largest Incoming Class in History

Baptist Seminary of Kentucky is enrolling 16 new students for the Fall 2019 semester, which is the Seminary’s largest incoming class in its history. New student orientation was held on Saturday, August 24, 2019 with both sites (Louisville and Georgetown, KY) participating simultaneously through BSK’s Zoom technology. Classes began on Monday, August 26, 2019 at both sites, as well.

While there are new students at both of BSK’s sites, over half of the incoming students are Louisville students. This significant growth is partly due to the announcement of a new scholarship at BSK, the Kevin and Barnetta Cosby Seminary Scholarship for American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS). The Cosby Scholarship awards full-tuition to up to 10 students per year that identify as ADOS.

This new growth marks exciting days ahead at Baptist Seminary of Kentucky! BSK President, Dr. David Cassady, says, “The vision of the Eula Mae and John Baugh Foundation, along with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and our community of generous donors has allowed BSK to create new initiatives and partnerships that are attracting new students. Most of our graduates leave with zero new student debt from their seminary career. We are excited about what God is doing through BSK!”
