The new president of Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College in Cumberland is F. Lynn Moore, currently the vice-president of student development and administrative services at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.
Moore's appointment was announced Thursday by Kentucky Community and Technical College System President Michael McCall.
Before going to Umpqua, Moore was dean of students and an adjunct instructor at Hill Community College District in Texas and supplemental education services director at Texas State Technical College.
Moore said in a statement from the Kentucky Community and Technical College System that she is "honored and proud" to be selected for the post. She'll begin her duties July 8th after the retirement of President Bruce Ayers, who's led the college for 26 years.
Kevin's interview with Nick Brake, incoming head of Owensboro Public Schools
The incoming chief of the Owensboro Public School system says fully-funding pre-Kindergarten programs would be the best education investment state lawmakers could make.
Nick Brake will take over as leader of Owensboro's school system July 1, following seven years with the Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation.
He told WKU Public Radio increased pre-K funding is money well spent.
"If you fully fund those programs, not only do you contribute three-to-one to their earnings later, but every dollar you spend there ends up saving the state money on the back end with benefit programs, criminal justice, and other savings," Brake said. "It's a long-term investment and sometimes those are difficult for public policy makers to swallow, but I think it's an investment that needs to be made."
Brake signed a four-year contract Monday to take over as leader of the Owensboro Public School system.
Owensboro Public Schools didn’t have to go far to find the new chief of its city school system. Nick Brake, president and CEO of the Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation, has signed a four-year contract to lead Owensboro Public Schools.
