He is a leader on campus, as well as a member of the All-KCTCS Academic, which provides him the opportunity to be a student speaker at this year's graduation.Roy is also a member of Phi Theta Kappa, TRIO Student Support Services, and the New Beginnings Adult Support Group.In addition, heserves in the community as a Cub Scout leader, church youth leader, football coach, a member of two Mayfield city boards , and is a thespian performer at the Mayfield's Purchase Players.

Roy does all this, but will tell you his first priority is his familyfive children, and supportive wife, Laura, who is a student herself in the RN Program here at WKCTC. Congratulations Roy!!
