HCTC hires Jennifer Lutes as math facultyJennifer Lutes of Beattyville is a new math instructor at Hazard Community and Technical College with an attitude of service instilled in her. I want to be the best teacher and advisor that I can be. I plan on learning as much as possible each semester to become better at both teaching and advising. I want my students to know that they can come to me for help or just to talk if they need to.
Mrs..

While employed, she took one class from HCTC towards her associate s degree in 1996. She was still employed at Lees for three more years after HCTC merged with Lees College.

Supervisors remarked that Jennifer did an outstanding job working with the students in that capacity and beginning this fall she was hired to teach mathematics full-time. I really love working for HCTC. I have always felt at home here.
