CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Stan McKinney, assistant professor of journalism at Campbellsville University, has been promoted to associate professor of journalism, according to an announcement from Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University.
McKinney's love of teaching earned him the Campbellsville University's Advancement Board's 18th Annual Excellence in Teaching Award for tenured faculty in 2010 at the university's annual Honors and Awards Day.
McKinney has taught reporting, photojournalism, desktop publishing, media ethics and a variety of other classes at Campbellsville University since becoming a full-time professor in 2000. Prior to that, he was an adjunct instructor for 13 years while working at the Central Kentucky News-Journal, the Campbellsville twice-weekly newspaper. He won the Excellence in Teaching Award for adjunct faculty in 1996.
He has bachelor of science and a master of science degrees in journalism from Murray State University. He worked for almost 26 years as a reporter, photographer and editor for three different newspapers.
His first job was at The Sturgis News as a reporter. He then worked for The Sentinel-News in Shelbyville, KY, for five years (where he met his wife) and afterward for 20 years as news editor at the CKNJ, where his daughter now works as a reporter.
He serves as lead professor of mass communication at CU, adviser of the Campus Times, the CU newspaper, and he has written four textbooks on journalism and photography and a personal one on flower photography. He has worked with students to create several books highlighting the CU campus and also books on veterans.
He worked with CU and the Central Kentucky News-Journal to form the Stan McKinney Central Kentucky News-Journal Digital Image Collection, A.B. Colvin Baptist Collection and Archives, Montgomery Library, Campbellsville University. The collection has more than 100,000 images taken by him while he was news editor at the CKNJ.
A native of Princeton, KY, McKinney has lived in Campbellsville since 1980 and serves on the Campbellsville City Council.
He is the son of Norvell McKinney of Princeton, KY, and the late Gurtha May McKinney. He graduated from Caldwell County High School.
He is married to Joan C. McKinney, news and publications coordinator at CU. They have a daughter, Calen, who's grown up on the CU campus, is a graduate of CU, a reporter and photographer for the Central Kentucky News-Journal and is now teaching at CU as an adjunct communication instructor.
