Having worked in the financial aid arena for 17 years, Kenneth Wilson is no stranger to Albany Tech. He served in the position at Albany Tech from April of 2001 to August of 2006. Currently, he is the Director of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships at Elizabeth City State University in the University of North Carolina system.

He also took graduate level classes in Public Administration at Savannah State University. While employed with Elizabeth City State University, Wilson implemented and managed Ellucian's Banner Student Financial Aid module.

"My goals for the financial aid department at Albany Tech are to speed up the processing of student loans, reduce the default rate, and simplify the verification process," said Wilson. "This should allow staff to be more focused on counseling students and less time on processing paper."
