Dr. Pruitt, a professor of psychology, received the honor Wednesday, April 30 from among 36 faculty members who were also nominated for the award. Each instructor nominated had to hold an assistant professor status or above and be a member of the WKCTC teaching faculty for the past three years.

“Today is my birthday and being selected Teacher of the Year really makes the day extra special,” said Pruitt. 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.”

Dr. Pruitt joined the WKCTC faculty in 2001. He holds a doctorate degree in behavioral neuroscience from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
