I Support Columbia State because...

Kirk Kelso

…of the importance of the College to the community; not just for students who want an alternative to a four-year school, but also for single parents and other adults looking for an opportunity to better themselves. In my time working with the Foundation, I am proud of the scholarship money we have raised and the work we have done to give back to the community, and I am grateful for the lasting friendships gained. I am excited for the continued growth of the College, particularly with the new building in Lawrenceburg, which I expect, will have the same impact that the Williamson Campus has had. I hope to help  contribute to that growth with continued involvement with the College beyond my term as a Foundation Board member.

Kirk Kelso, Executive Vice President of Lewisburg Printing Company, first became involved with the Foundation as a committee member for the J.R. Moon Golf Classic, which benefits Marshall County students through scholarships and support of the Columbia State Lewisburg Campus. His role evolved from there, serving on the Board from 2013 including as Chair from July 2017 - June 2019.
