Bluegrass Community and Technical College Honors 2012 Hall of Fame Alumni
Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) is proud to honor Kathryn H. Hunt as the newest member of the Super Sunday Hall of Fame.
Hunt graduated from Lexington Community College (LCC) now known as Bluegrass Community amp; Technical College (BCTC) in 1989 with an associate in arts degree and later transferred to the University of Louisville where she became the first African American to graduate from the physical therapy program.
Upon completion of the physical therapy program, Hunt worked at the University of Kentucky outpatient department for thirteen years before joining Drayer Physical Therapy Institute, where she has worked for the last seven years. She also works as a lab assistant to Tony English Ph.D., where she provides clinical input and serves as a mentor for current and perspective physical therapy students. Additionally, Hunt works with Fayette County Public Schools Experienced-Based Career Education program for high school students, and with other student volunteers who have an interest in the physical therapy profession.
My community college experience at BCTC was very instrumental in allowing me to apply to physical therapy school, said Hunt. My instructors not only taught me how to study and how to get the grades I needed to prepare for the university level, but also helped me to believe that I could reach my ultimate goal.
BCTC and each of the other 15 Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) colleges and System Office will partner with churches in their communities to host Super Sunday information fairs for prospective college students and their families on February 12.
BCTC will host three Super Sunday events this year in collaboration with:
- Consolidated Baptist Church, 1625 Russell Cave Road, Lexington, Ky. at 9:45 a.m.
- St. James AME Church, 124 Walnut Street, Danville, Ky. at 10:30 a.m.
- First Baptist Church, 37 North Highland Avenue, Winchester, Ky. At 11:00 a.m.
Speakers for BCTC's Super Sunday event include Reverend Richard Gaines, pastor Consolidated Baptist Church with special introduction of BCTC President Dr. Augusta A. Julian, Reverend William Jenkins, pastor St. James AME Church with introduction of BCTC Vice President of Student Development and Enrollment Management Dr. Palisa Williams-Rushin and Reverend Marvin O. King, pastor of First Baptist Church with introduction of BCTC Vice President of Multiculturalism and Inclusion Charlene Walker.
Were very excited to be able to expand Super Sunday this year, said BCTC President Dr. Augusta A. Julian. We had a great event in Lexington last year, but we serve communities throughout Central Kentucky, and believe it is really important to reach out to them and spread the message that anyone can go to college.
