Coldstream director is retiring

Tina Carpenter, executive director at the University of Kentucky's Coldstream Research Campus for the last three years, is retiring at the end of February.

Len Heller, UK's vice president for Commercialization and Economic Development, said in a statement that Carpenter, 50, "has laid an excellent foundation at Coldstream for moving forward."

UK plans to announce a new Coldstream executive director and release information on its master planning initiative during the first quarter of this year.

Construction at Coldstream is expected to begin this year on the $129 million Eastern State Hospital, a replacement building for the second-oldest psychiatric hospital in the country, now off Newtown Pike near downtown Lexington.
