Thompson Wins Gussler Award
Alice Kay Thompson, Professor of Mathematics at ACTC, has received the prestigious Gussler Family Endowed Chair in Science and Mathematics Award. The award was announced at ACTC’s Graduation Ceremony on May 11.
An Ashland area native and Russell resident, Professor Thompson started her college education at ACTC, known then as the UK Ashland Center. She then completed a BA in Education and an MA with an emphasis on Mathematics/Education at Morehead State University She earned a Rank I in Educational Administration at Marshall University.After 30 years as a mathematics teacher in the Russell Independent School System, she taught Transitional Math area at Marshall University. She taught developmental mathematics part-time at ACTC before becoming a fulltime faculty member in 2000.
Thompson is listed in Who’s Who among Outstanding Teachers and was selected to the Commonwealth Institute of Teachers. She is a member of Kentucky Association of Developmental Educators, National Association of Developmental Educators, and the Delta Kappa Gamma National Honor Society.
She received ACTC’s Teaching Excellence Award in fall 2011 and was the college’s nominee for the National Institute for Staff and Organization Development 2011-12 Teaching Excellence Award. She has also co-authored two books designed to help mathematics teachers to align with the Ohio Content Standards.
The Gussler Award was established by Dr. C. Gordon Gussler and his wife Dixie Gussler in 2007 to recognize full-time math and science faculty who foster in their students a desire to learn and reach their maximum potential.
Recipients are nominated by students, fellow faculty or college staff. Award criteria include inspiring students to develop capabilities they did not realize they had, empowering students to succeed beyond their experiences, and instilling in students a love of learning.Graduate Enjoys His New Job
William P. Mullins, Jr, was unable to attend ACTC’s Graduation Ceremony May 11 because he was working at his new job at the Marathon refinery in Catlettsburg.
He was one of three Applied Process Technology (APT) Program students who participated in the first internship program with Marathon this spring. “When my intern position ended, I was offered a job which I gladly accepted,” said Mullins, an Ashland resident and 1993 Paul G. Blazer High School graduate.
Preparing for a good job was the reason Mullins entered the APT program after AK Steel announced its plan to shut down the Ashland Coke Plant where he worked.
“I heard about the APT program from friends and thought it sounded promising with its high percentage of graduates finding decent income jobs,” he said.
“I took a chance and set my goals high. It has been a long tough journey, but two years later I can say things have fallen into place even better than I had hoped,” he said. He earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in APT with the Chemical/Power Plant.
“I can honestly say ACTC was a great experience for me,” Mullins said. “I met some great people, and Bob Chaffins, Woody Fosson and Ralfred Hall were three of the professors who made my experience at ACTC very rewarding.”
At ACTC Honors Night May 9, he received an American Chemical Society Student Recognition Award. He was honored to receive the award but considers his job to be the real award for his college efforts.
