Trustees of Dodge City Community College have chosen Don Woodburn as the school's new president.
Woodburn had been serving as interim president of the
southwestern Kansas college since January. The previous permanent president, Richard Burke, retired last June.
The Dodge City Daily Globe reports the Board of Trustees
approved a two-year, three-month contract with Woodburn this week.
It takes effect April 1.
Woodburn is a former president of Coffeyville Community College,
in southeastern Kansas. He's also a former dean of the University
of Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture.
Dodge City's trustees have called him a good fit for their
school because of his background in rural colleges.
