Midway, Ky.-Midway College is pleased to announce that Scott Fitzpatrick has joined its staff as the new Vice President of Development.
Fitzpatrick is a veteran advancement officer with more than a dozen years in the higher education industry. Most recently Fitzpatrick was the Chief Advancement Officer with the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry.

“Scott’s understanding of higher education and his connections within the local community and throughout the state of Kentucky were impressive to us,” said Dr. John P. Marsden, President of Midway College. “His understanding of donor and alumni relations is critical to help Midway College in our advancement efforts. He understands that the needs of a college vary from raising funds for scholarships, events sponsorships, capital campaigns and planned giving. His experience and results-driven personality are just what we need in our advancement office.”
