Description

Ken Wooten earned three degrees at the University of Mississippi – a Bachelor of Arts in special education in 1956, Bachelor of Laws in 1960 and Juris Doctor in 1968. He earned his first job at the university, that of night watchman in the school cafeteria, soon after enrolling in 1954. He taught in the Oxford School District before returning to his alma mater in 1959 as an admissions counselor. For 31 years, he served the University as counselor, director of placement and financial aid and finally admissions dean until his retirement in February 1991.

The annual Ken Wooten Scholars Bowl on the Oxford campus is named in his honor.
