The ACCT Association Award, presented at the organization’s 45th Annual Leadership Congress in Chicago, is among the most prestigious awards any community college faculty can receive.
“Teaching evaluations for Dr. Bill Mulkey glow with his accomplishments in the classroom,” said Randall “Mack” Jackson, MTC Commission chair. “Time and again he is praised as a motivator and an inspiration. Praise for Bill Mulkey comes from beyond the classroom as well. He is a nationally known and loved figure in radiology circles who has consistently earned the respect of his peers as a thought leader.”
