He said winning the award is an honor and he is thankful to be teaching at WKCTC, something he loves to do. “My true personal philosophy is that if we actually touch a person’s life and actually make a difference, then we’ve served a higher purpose,” Pruitt said. “I love this college and I love the students. I hope we are a foundation for them for the rest of their lives.”
