Honors Director, Dr. Lydia R. Daniel Honors Program, Hillsborough Community College
Kathleen King has been a part of honors education for more than 16 years and has served as Honors Director at Hillsborough Community College for 5 years. She has served on the National Collegiate Honors Council Board of Directors two separate terms, is an NCHC Fellow, and is currently a member of the NCHC Finance Committee, co-chair of the NCHC Advocacy Committee, and an NCHC Program Reviewer. An advocate of NCHC Partners in the Parks, Kathleen has facilitated Director Retreats and student projects in Everglades, Acadia, Rocky Mountains, and Smoky Mountains. She fervently believes in the mission of the community college system and has seen honors serve as a valuable segue to four–year institutions, including ivy league and elite colleges and universities nationwide. Last year, students from the HCC Honors Program were offered more than $700,00 in transfer scholarships, largely due to coursework, community service, and other important honors programming.
