Pruett appointed to KC Board of Trustees to fill vacant spot

The Kilgore College Board of Trustees approved J. Karol Pruett Oct. 14 to fill the place 6 seat which was vacated when Charlie Hale resigned from the board due to health reasons in August.

She fills the unexpired term in the Central Zone (Kilgore ISD) left open by Hale, former board president, until a special election can be called in May 2015.

Pruett was approved 5-2 with Brian Nutt and Joe Carrington voting against the motion.

A graduate of Kilgore High School, Pruett earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and real estate and a master’s degree in finance from The University of Texas.

Pruett worked at KC from 1987-2012, most recently as the assistant to the president from 1996-2012. 

In the summer of 2012 she worked for T.S. Dudley Land Company in Sullivan County, Penn.

She has also worked part-time since January 2013 as office manager of the Law Office of Jeff Jackson in Kilgore.
