ALBANY, Ga. -- Albany Technical College has announced the appointment of Kenneth Wilson as its new Director of Financial Aid in the Student Affairs division. Wilson will officially begin at Albany Tech in January.

Having worked in the financial aid arena for 17 years, Wilson is no stranger to the college, having served in the position at ATC from 2001 to 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 holds two bachelor's degrees (Computer Science Technology and Mathematics) from Savannah State College and also took graduate level classes in Public Administration at Savannah State University.

"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."

Prior to his position with ECSU, Wilson served as the systems analyst in the Enrollment Management office at Savannah State.
