Daniel Hurt wants to be a lawyer and he began his journey at WKCTC. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to get involved in politics and public service. To me, it has always been a dream to be able to represent and fight for the people in some way; to truly make this the Great Society that President Lyndon Johnson envisioned 40 years ago.”
Daniel is working toward his associate degree with plans to transfer to Murray State University to earn a bachelor’s degree before he completes a law degree from the University of Kentucky. “Once I graduate, I want to serve as a public defender or in the State Advocate’s office; to be a lawyer for everyone, not simply for the highest bidder.”
In the spring of 2014, Daniel was selected to be a WKCTC Student Ambassador and said the experience has not only helped him continue to be a voice for his fellow students, but also to reach out to the broader community.
Daniel said the professors on campus have been outstanding; they are very honorable and dedicated individuals who want only the best for their students. “I would tell students that WKCTC is an excellent choice to pursue higher education...the teachers you’ll learn from, and the students you’ll meet will inspire you into wanting to do something that you hadn’t considered before.”
