The Eastern Shore Community College has a new president that serves the residents of Accomack and Northampton counties.
He’s James Shaeffer, dean at Old Dominion University.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Glenn DuBois, the chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges, says that Shaeffer has spent more than 30 years in higher education with an emphasis on workforce development training.
In a statement Shaeffer says that he was struck by the connection that the college shares with the community.
He was chosen from a national search that saw 92 applicants.
