LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A University of Louisville assistant professor is being honored for founding a program to help veterans start their own businesses.

The university says College of Business Assistant Professor Sharon Kerrick is being named the 2014 Kentucky Veteran’s Small Business Advocate of the Year for founding VetStart in 2012.

U of L’s Office of Military Initiatives and Partnerships as well as Nucleus, which is an arm of the U of L Foundation, are collaborators.

VetStart offers 10 weeks of intensive entrepreneurship training, some business startup expenses and a year of follow-up meetings with U of L business school mentors. More than two dozen veterans have been through the program already.
