About Kevin Jetton

Kevin Jetton, CDP, has provided dedicated and energetic service to AITP for many years, serving as President of his local chapter, his region, and as the national President of AITP. Since 1996, he has been the driving force behind the AITP National Collegiate Conference. As a result of his generous service, thousands of AITP student members and professional members have enjoyed numerous opportunities for meaningful personal/professional growth.

In 2003, several members of AITP joined together with local chapters and the AITP Education Special Interest Group (EDSIG) to establish the Kevin Jetton Service Scholarship. The scholarship is intended to recognize outstanding service to fellow IT professionals through leadership and volunteer activity (including leadership roles in AITP student chapters).
