Gov. Matt Bevin welcomed a new class of Kentucky AmeriCorps members pledging to "get things done" as they embark upon a year of service to the Commonwealth on Monday. The swearing-in ceremony was part of the Service for Peace "9/11 Salute to Our Heroes" event at Fourth Street Live! in downtown Louisville, which also recognized Kentucky's first responders and military heroes on the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance. "Tonight is an amazing evening of reflection and celebration of the American spirit," said Gov. Bevin, a U.S. Army veteran. "We are truly grateful to all of our servant leaders who are gathered here -- military personnel, first responders and AmeriCorps volunteers."
