Keeney named executive director of Mill Springs Battlefield

Former Chamber director succeeds Gilbert


Nancy —

Keeney’s role in promoting the community and the food bank (which is always in need of donations) in his previous jobs could come in handy for the task of spreading the word about the battlefield.
“I can hopefully build some good bridges,” he said, noting the ability to help the cause of making the battlefield a national park. “I have a pretty good relationship with Congressman Rogers and Sen. (Mitch) McConnell.”
Keeney also said applying for grants and giving out information to the public among the key aspects of his new position.
“This is a preservation program,” he said. “Our main objective is to preserve the integrity of the battlefield. We want to make sure we’re following all the rules and regulations, and have all policies in procedures in place. That’s you’re biggest challenge, making sure you’re in compliance. Then you’ve got to work closely with the non-profit board to make sure I’m on the path they want me to be on.
“It is just a really rewarding job,” he continued. “My challenge is to get the word out there and making sure the community knows what’s going on at the battlefield. I’m not sure everyone here has been out to the battlefield, and that’s the challenge, to get everyone out here to visit.”
