After 35 years of service to Amarillo College, Dr. Paul Matney will retire this summer. During those years, he interacted with countless students, faculty, staff and community members. Here’s what some of them they had to say about one of the most popular presidents in AC history.
After raising funds in the fall and spring, Badger Hearts members hosted their annual Hope Chest Banquet Saturday at Amarillo College.
Ten foster youths received certificates of graduation sent by Gov. Rick Perry, and three AC students received Hope Chest checks from Texas Child Protective Services, said Lesley Ingham, a speech instructor and club adviser.
One of the biggest surprises Judy Carter, honors program coordinator, had while working at Amarillo College was during her first year when she realized a difference between high school and college: student attendance was not mandatory.
Carter had worked at Amarillo High School for 21 years as a teacher in speech, theater and English. In 1992, she was hired as a speech instructor by AC President Dr. Paul Matney, the then-chairman of the Language, Communication and Fine Arts Division.
