Northern Kentucky University’s Anthony Mize has been recognized by WCPO-TV in its series “Next 9: Educators.” Mize currently serves as the Interim Director of African-American Programs and Services at NKU.

WCPO’s Next 9 series highlights the best and brightest minds committed to making Cincinnati great. Each month, Channel 9 accept nominations in a different category and they select young professionals to feature. This month focused on the local leaders in education.

"To be recognized by WCPO is a great honor and achievement. I am beyond grateful to have been nominated and truly hope that my work ethic and drive to impact students speaks for itself,” said Mize. “I always tell students, ‘Excellence is not a Skill; Excellence is an Attitude.’ And so, I hope that it encourages them to put their best attitude forward and to keep striving for excellence in their daily lives."

NKU’s African American Programs & Services was established in 1993, with a goal to provide programming and services to assist African American students, faculty and staff to achieve academic success. It also works to educate the campus community and surrounding region.
