Morehead State to start residential high school for gifted students

Morehead State University will start a residential high school for gifted students, much like the current Gatton Academy at Western Kentucky University. The Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics will be paid for with $2.3 million from the state and a $4 million pledge from coal magnate Joe Craft, the CEO of Alliance Resource Partners. Morehead officials said it was the largest single cash gift in the university's history.
