June 11, 2014 — Two Ashland Community and Technical College deans, both of whom are Boyd County residents, have moved into new positions in a reorganization process designed to improve processes and procedures and address new needs.
Willie McCullough has moved from Dean of Student Affairs to Dean of Resource Development & External Affairs. This position became vacant when the previous Dean, Dr. Larry Ferguson, moved to the Kentucky Community and Technical College System’s main office.
In addition to resource development and workforce training, McCullough’s new position includes oversight of marketing/public relations. “As someone familiar with all of these different externally-focused functions, Dean McCullough will be able to provide an integrated approach to college development strategies and projects,” said Dr. Kay Adkins, ACTC President and CEO.
The vacant Dean of Student Affairs position has been posted and the search committee is currently in the interview phase of search process.
John McGlone has moved from Dean of Marketing and Community Relations to Dean of Public Services. This new position will be responsible for safety and security, including federal and state mandates, regular updates of the crisis management plan, emergency notifications, and supervision of security personnel as well as issues related to the KCTCS Sustainability Initiative.
“Campus safety / security has received more attention nationwide in the past few years, and new Federal regulations for campus safety require more attention to crisis preparation and well as incident reporting,” said Dr. Adkins. “ACTC has always been a safe campus, and we want to ensure that we can meet emerging safety standards.
