It’s permanent. After serving as interim executive director of the Kentucky Heritage Council for the last eight months, Shelbyville resident Mark Dennen officially was appointed to the post by Gov. Steve Beshear on Friday.
“Mark brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Heritage Council and is well respected for his work,” Marcheta Sparrow, secretary of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet said in a release. “Preservation in Kentucky will be in good hands with Mark as executive director.”
