Biography:

Benson is no stranger to the Lindsey Wilson community. He served in the Freshman Year Experience program from May 2004 to August 2012, first as an advisor and then as director starting in May 2006. His experience and familiarity with LWC establishes the framework necessary to effectively lead, teach, and facilitate the classroom. Benson is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Communication Studies at the University of Kentucky while holding a M.A. in Communication Studies from Western Kentucky University and a B.A. in Communication Studies from Lindsey Wilson College.

Since 2007, Benson served as an adjunct instructor in the Communication program at LWC, teaching Public Speaking, Introduction to Communication, Interpersonal Communication, and Organizational Communication. His research interests are in interpersonal communication and instructional communication, specifically focusing on the impact of faculty/student relationships, in and out of class, on retention. One of his most enjoyable experiences as an instructor is assisting students in polishing their public speaking and communicative skills so they become effective communicators in their future careers.  

Benson is married to Kristin and they have two children, Luke Aaron and Kate Elisabeth. He is a diehard UK and LWC basketball and football fan, and enjoys golf, hunting and fishing, playing the guitar, and singing.
