James King of Vancleve has been named the Administrative Staff New Horizon Award honoree at Hazard Community and Technical College. The Kentucky Community and Technical College System will recognize him in May.
King first started at HCTC in December 2000 in Information Technology (IT) and has been promoted three times. He began as an IT Assistant, then IT Specialist; another promotion led to IT Tech Coordinator, and his latest promotion was to IT Project Manager.
Donna Roark, Chief Information Officer, noted, James is a self-motivated, innovative, team member that has independently studied, tested and prepared new systems, processes, and training for our team and our entire college system James is an excellent employee in all regards.
She said King saw the need for an overhaul of our current work order system, server management system, and software distribution to the college s computer network. Through countless hours of research he determined the product that offered the greatest resource. In just a few short months James implemented the program which includes Configuration Manager, Virtual Machine manager, and System Center Data Protection Manager district wide, well before it was adopted state wide and without any interruption to the current systems so HCTC could continue day to day operations.
HCTC President Dr. Steve Greiner commends King for his work as technology representative in a classroom project in the Telford Center at the Lees College Campus. He appreciated his work with architects and contractors during construction.
King holds a bachelor s degree in Business Administration.
