Kings For A Day

The UF College of Education recently hosted two of its most accomplished graduates in Higher Ed Admin., brothers Max King (EDD ’56) and Charles King (MED ’63)—both pioneers in the state and national junior college and community college movement. Max King was the founding president of Indian River Junior College and headed Brevard Community College for 30 years; he was the first Floridian ever recognized (in 1989) as America’s top administrator in higher education by the American Association of University Administrators. His brother, Charles King, was the the founding president of Southwest Virginia Community College for 40 years before retiring in 2007.
