The board that regulates community colleges in the state has named Dr. Dale Doty as the new chancellor of River Parishes Community College.
The Louisiana Community and Technical College System's Board of Supervisors unanimously chose Doty on Thursday. Board President Joe May says Doty has a rare combination of academic, technical, and business and industry experience.
Doty says he's humbled by the opportunity to serve and looked forward to working with faculty, staff, students and the community to grow the college into one of the "finest institutions in the state and nation."
River Parishes is an open-admission, two-year, post-secondary public institution serving the river parishes.
Doty takes over as chancellor in mid-November. He is currently the vice president for Academic Affairs at Florence Darlington Technical College in Florence, S.C.
