Each year, the incoming KPA President gets to select up to four people from KPA member newspapers to serve as a State At-Large Board member during his/her term in office. State At-Large members are appointed for one-year terms but can serve up to three consecutive years if selected by each incoming president.
2018 KPA President Peter Baniak has named the four State At-Large Board members for his time as head of the organization.
The four are:
• Eddie Blakeley, Publisher of The Daily Independent in Ashland;
• Jane Ashley Pace, Publisher of the Oldham Era and Henry County Local
• Josh Givens, Editor of the Central City Leader News
• Carrie Dillard, News Editor of The Paducah Su
