Technical college names director of external relations

Service with Thomas More, NKU not conflict of interest, he says

        Businessman Dorsey W. Jones has been named director of external relations for Kentucky Community and Technical College system in Northern Kentucky.

        His responsibilities include ascertaining the needs of business and industry as the technical college expands into a community and technical college in the next few years.

        Mr. Jones, 61, of Anderson Township has been president of Bank One in Northern Kentucky, vice president for corporate business development at West Shell Realtors and district marketing director for Delta Air Lines.

        He remains a Thomas More College trustee and a director of the Northern Kentucky University Foundation.

        Mr. Jones this week said there is no conflict between those two volunteer positions. Moreover, he said his new employer is not in competition with those established four-year schools and he saw no conflicts of interest.

        However, Mr. Jones said he would not be raising funds for Thomas More or NKU so long as he worked for the community and technical college system.

        Northern Kentucky Technical College has campuses in Highland Heights, Edgewood and Covington.

        When it becomes a community college as well, it not only will offer two-year degrees, but it will be a relatively inexpensive place to complete the first two years before students transfer to NKU or Thomas More.
