The Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Distinguished College Administrator Awards are presented to college vice presidents, deans, or directors serving at post-secondary institutions who have shown strong support of student success on their campus by recognizing academic achievement, leadership, and service among high-achieving students.

Midland College is proud to announce that one of this year's recipients is Vice President of Instructional Services Dr. Damon Kennedy.

Kennedy began his academic career as a student at Midland College. He later received a B.A. and M.A. in American History from The University of Texas of the Permian Basin and a Ph.D. in American History from Texas Tech University. He started work at Midland College as an adjunct professor of History in 2004 and after two years became a full-time professor of History. In 2015, Dr. Kennedy was promoted to the position of Dean of Social/Behavioral Sciences & Business and in 2018, transitioned to the Vice President of Instructional Service at MC.

“It is a privilege to be able to work so closely with a dynamic group of Midland College students who have embraced, informed and advanced the mission of our institution,” Damon Kennedy said. “What makes this award so special is that the nomination comes from Midland College students. None of this would be possible but for the tremendous efforts of those same PTK students, Dr. Terry Gilmour, and the many other faculty and staff supporting their work.”

Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The Society is made up of more than 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 11 nations, with approximately 240,000 active members in the nation’s colleges.
