Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) Associate Professor of Respiratory Care, Ken DeLane McKenney, was elected Chair of the Kentucky Board of Respiratory Care. 

McKenney was appointed to the board by the Governor of Kentucky first in 2016 and then again in 2019.  He has served as State Respiratory Care Education Committee Chair and as Vice Chair of the Board.  McKenney is the Respiratory Care Director of Clinical Education at SKYCTC. 

The Kentucky Board of Respiratory Care is a government agency that regulates respiratory care practitioners and their services. The KBRC was established in 1990 to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky from unsafe practitioners and practices.

The KBRC Board is self-supporting and receives no KY general fund tax appropriation. It is funded through fees assessed for licensing its professionals.
