VC President to speak at Fireside Chat on Oct. 10

Victoria College President Dr. Jennifer Kent will be the featured storyteller at the upcoming Innovation Collective’s Fireside Chat at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 10.

“Our monthly Fireside Chat gives attendees the opportunity to be inspired by the storytelling of entrepreneurs, civic leaders, and other innovative minds,” said Karissa Winters, Community Lead for Innovation Collective Victoria. “I really look forward to hearing Dr. Kent share her inspiring stories of trial and error.”

Kent served as the Senior Vice President at Ranger College for two years before becoming the sixth president of Victoria College in 2020. She previously worked in public education for 19 years, including 11 years as a secondary school district administrator.

Kent was recently selected to participate in the inaugural cohort of the Aspen Institute’s Presidents Fellowship. She and the other fellows will work towards advancing strategies aimed at delivering excellent student outcomes for all students.

The Fireside Chat will take place at 120 S. Main St. in downtown Victoria. The event is free and open to the public.
