SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) -- The southern Kentucky city of Somerset has been approved to begin a pilot program that would offer high school students vocational training in natural gas technology.

The move is a natural for Somerset, which runs its own natural gas distribution system that stretches into eastern Kentucky.

The program comes as the city is preparing to build an $8.5 million energy hub to house a monitoring station for the pipeline as well as city service offices.

High school students in the program will earn dual high school and college credits that would go toward a natural gas technician program.

Mayor Eddie Girdler tells the Commonwealth Journal he hopes the classes can begin in the fall.
