Secretary of the Kentucky Labor Cabinet Derrick Ramsey will be the guest speaker at this month’s Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon meeting.

The career path of Derrick K. Ramsey is one that personifies leadership most notably as an All-American football player, nationally-recognized athletic director, and his service to public office here in the Commonwealth.

In 1975, Ramsey would become the first African-American starting quarterback in the University of Kentucky’s history. Two years later, he would not only lead the Wildcats to a 10-1 season at the helm, but also rack up numerous personal accolades including first team All-Southeastern Conference and third-team All-American.

After a successful nine-year NFL career including winning a 1981 Super Bowl ring, he would soon become a small business owner managing real estate and personal investment portfolios. This time away from the gridiron also gave him the opportunity to complete his undergraduate degree and go on to obtain his Master’s Degree in Sports Administration from Eastern Kentucky University.

In December of 2015, newly-elected Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin called on Ramsey’s proven track record on leadership by asking him to once again serve the citizens of the Commonwealth, this time as Secretary of the Kentucky Labor Cabinet.

First & Farmers Bank is sponsoring the October luncheon.
