Award-winning journalist Kevin Cullen has worked in the newspaper business for more than 30 years. He is now the director of planning and communications for the Catholic Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana and writer/editor of The Catholic Moment, a weekly newspaper with 28,000 subscribers. Kevin also writes a weekly column for the Sunday edition of the Danville Commercial-News. Occasionally, he reminisces about Danville Area Community College, his alma mater, where he was a student from 1972-74.
Kevin, 55, a Danville native, holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Illinois and an associate degree from DACC – then Danville Junior College.
Kevin did well in his classes at DACC and was able to transfer into the prestigious journalism program at the University of Illinois as one of only fifty juniors accepted each year. All of his DACC credits were accepted.
I enjoyed the smaller classes and the teachers were excellent. All my credits transferred and I was well prepared academically. My bachelor’s degree from the U of I looks just like those of my classmates, but mine was much less expensive. I would recommend DACC to anyone.
