MURFREESBORO, N.C. (ABP) — The trustees of Chowan College have dissolved the committee searching for a new president and authorized Interim President Chris White to use the title of president for now, according to trustee chairperson Bynum Brown.
Trustees said they will re-evaluate the search process next fall, Brown added. They commended White's service as interim since June, Brown said. “He's provided outstanding leadership for our institution.”
Stan Lott retired as Chowan's president May 31. Chowan has been through some financial difficulty but is now operating in the black, according to Brown. White resigned as president of Gardner-Webb University in October 2002 amid criticism for altering a star basketball player's grade point average.
