LOUISVILLE – Chris Ernst, senior vice president for Administration at Sullivan University, has been elected president of the Kentucky Association of Career Colleges and Schools (KACCS).
Ernst, a Louisville native and Sullivan University graduate, officially began his tenure as president during the Aug. 9 KACCS annual conference, which was held at Sullivan University in Louisville. He follows past presidents Cindy Landry of ATA College and Jan Gordon, also of Sullivan University.
“I have served in higher education for 25 years starting at a very young age, so I have grown up working alongside several present and past board members and past presidents of KACCS,” Ernst said. “I have seen the passion and intensity they have poured into higher education and how hard they have worked on collaboration between the schools. I take this honor very seriously because I know how important our institutions are to the students we serve and business and industry across the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”
As KACCS president, Ernst will manage the business and affairs of the organization while reporting to the KACCS Board of Directors and membership.
