Patrick Rudd ProjectMADISONVILLE, Ky. (6/12/18) — The Patrick Rudd Project announced it will host Mitch Barnhart, University of Kentucky Cheerleaders and the Wildcat mascot for lunch during their tour of the Western Kentucky region 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 19 at the Joseph “Eddie” Ballard Western Kentucky Veterans Center in Hanson.

Barnhart has been the Athletic Director at UK since 2002. In 2016, Barnhart signed a 10-year extension on his contract which will keep him at Kentucky until 2022. Barnhart was named Division I Athletic Director of the Year in 2015 by his peers.

The UK cheerleaders won their 23rd national title – including their third in a row – at the Universal Cheerleaders Association competition in January. This year's win was the third in a row for the Kentucky cheer squad. Although Kentucky has won 23 championships in the last 34 years, it is the first triple triumph since 2008-10.

The Patrick Rudd Project and UK are both supporters of veterans and are looking forward to spending time with them June 19.
