Social Science Instructor Kyle Britt of Wesson has been selected as Co-Lin’s 2019 Humanities Instructor of the Year.

The Mississippi Humanities Council celebrates the occasion by supporting Humanities Teacher Awards to one humanities faculty member at each institution of higher learning in the state (29 total). Only the president or appropriate dean can nominate the faculty member, and the nominations must be received in September.

In recognition of this selection, Britt recently presented a program entitled “The History of Wesson and Co-Lin” on the college’s Wesson Campus. He will be honored by the Mississippi Humanities Council at their Annual Awards Banquet.

Britt is an honor graduate of Co-Lin where he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. He received a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Mississippi State University and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in history from the University of Southern Mississippi. Prior to Co-Lin, Britt was a social studies teacher at Wesson Attendance Center and Petal School District.

He is a member of the Mississippi Association of Educators and Macedonia Baptist Church in Brookhaven.
