Lisa Matlock, an Associate Professor of Computer Information Technology at Jackson State, is recognized as an Advanced Level Instructor this year through our course instructing partner, Cisco Networking Academy. This global award is reserved for instructors who receive the highest student evaluations in their classes throughout the year, and she is one of only 200 recipients for the year.
Matlock has worked at Jackson State for almost 27 years, beginning her career in OIT (Office of Information Technology) before transitioning to teaching. She did not expect this award, but says she is glad to be on the right track with her students. “It really lets me know that the classroom is my happy place and appreciate that maybe I can and am making a difference.”
