Chandler named Enterprise-Ozark CC president

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Nancy Chandler has been named the new president of Enterprise-Ozark Community College.

The State Board of Education accepted two-year Chancellor Bradley Byrne's recommendation of Chandler at its Thursday meeting.

The presidential search process involved 57 applicants from across the country.

Chandler had served as interim president since July 2008, replacing Stafford Thompson, who retired after serving as president at Enterprise-Ozark since 1996.

Byrne said Chandler stood out as the person to lead the college through the separation of the aviation campus.
