King received his Doctor of Education degree from Walden University. It took 5 years of work and he successfully defended his dissertation via telephone from his office on Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.

King said, "I never would have completed this degree without the G.I. Bill and the help of a military friendly school like Walden." King is a 33-year veteran of the Alabama National Guard and a retired school principal from Pickens County. He also works as the Anniston Army Depot's School Liaison Officer.
