Dr. Susan McBride, president of Brewton's Jefferson Davis Community College, is chairing the search committee for a new president at troubled Bishop State Community College in Mobile.
Former Bishop State president Yvonne Kennedy resigned last summer after incidents at the school, including charges some employees stole $200,000 from the college and probation status by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Bishop State's accrediting agency.
Kennedy was not charged with any wrongdoing.
McBride said she is also pleased to have JDCC recognized by two-year college Chancellor Bradley Byrne.
In addition to helping hire a new president, McBride said she is excited that her role will also include leading the new team at Bishop State toward finding a new president.
