The Kentucky Humanities Council voted at their April 2014 board meeting to elect Paducah Bank’s own David Denton to their board of directors. Denton will serve a three-year term on the board with the option of a second three-year term. The 23-member board is comprised of volunteers from throughout Kentucky who are committed to enriching the cultural and educational life of the Commonwealth. The board is responsible for awarding project grants to community organizations, setting council policy, and fund-raising to help the council meet the growing demand for its programs. The Kentucky Humanities Council is an independent, non-profit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and provides more than 500 public humanities programs to Kentuckians each year.
Denton is the senior partner of Denton & Keuler and has been involved in the practice for 45 years. He handles clients in both state and federal courts and within a broad spectrum of the law. Denton previously served as special justice for the Kentucky Supreme Court and is a Life Fellow of the Kentucky Bar Foundation. Denton is a 1969 graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law and has served as legal council for Paducah Bank since 1972. Denton is currently Secretary/Treasurer of the bank’s holding company and serves as chairman of the audit committee of the board of directors of Paducah’s only locally-owned, independent bank.
