FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A formal swearing-in ceremony will be next week for Sam Wright, elected last month to the Kentucky Supreme Court.

Supreme Court Clerk Susan Stokley Clary said in a news release the ceremony will be at 11 a.m. EST Monday in the Supreme Court Courtroom at the Capitol.

The longtime Letcher County Circuit Court judge last month defeated Janet Stumbo, a former Supreme Court justice now on the state Court of Appeals.

The release credits Wright with starting the first “Parent Education Clinic” in eastern Kentucky to help parents going through divorce and with starting a drug court to provide treatment and support for substance addiction recovery for people with criminal convictions.
