In March, the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research welcomed Kevin Puckett, M.A., as Senior Communications Officer. In this role, Kevin will also serve as the communications director for KY NSF EPSCoR. His communication expertise, paired with his talent for design and relationship building will provide the inspiration and direction needed to continue telling the great story that is KY NSF EPSCoR.
“Great Communication is about storytelling. Every person, every business, and every organization has a story to tell.”
A Berea College graduate, and native Kentuckian, with over 15 years of experience in design and communications in both private and higher education settings, Kevin cares deeply for the commonwealth and his fellow people, including the loss of thousands of jobs over the last decade in the coal industry. Kevin is inspired by the mission and research of both KY NSF EPSCoR and CAER, and hopes that through relevant storytelling and smart design, Kentucky and the world can learn how applied science can shape our future for good.
