Danville College Professor Receives Outstanding Faculty Award


Danville Community College’s adjunct professor of history John Kinger has been awarded the outstanding faculty award for 2018.

For his commitment and dedication to the college, Kinger received the award on August 16 during an annual lecturers’ meeting.

The professor was presented with a plaque by Debra Holley, who is the vice president of academic and student services.

“DCC is fortunate to have so many outstanding faculty—both full-time and adjunct,” Holley said.

“John Kingery has served the college and her students with 110 percent! He has taught classes, tutored, and initiated programs on a part-time status, often giving of his own time. He is a sterling example of what putting students before self-looks like and we are proud to recognize him with this award.”

Chris Pantazis, the fellow professor at the college, lauded Kingery for his excellent teaching model.

“John builds history and culture into everything he does at DCC,” Pantazis said.

“He makes history come alive through engaging lectures, connects history to the present through student civic engagement, and encourages students to participate in extracurricular activities,” he added.
