A college president in the region was named the board chair for a statewide higher education body.
Muskegon Community College President Dale Nesbary has been elected chair of the Michigan Community College Association’s Presidents Committee. He officially began his term when the two-year appointment was approved on July 26.
During the second year of his term, Nesbary will become chair of the MCCA board of directors, comprising trustees and presidents from the 28 Michigan community colleges.
He will be the first-ever Muskegon Community College president to be in the position.
“I am proud to serve my colleagues around the state and gratified that they nominated me to continue my advocacy for all Michigan community colleges in this important MCCA leadership role,” said Nesbary, who, as MCC’s president since 2009, has the second-longest presidential tenure in MCC’s 93-year history.
Jackson College Trustee John Crist will chair the board of directors in 2019-20.
