North Carolina’s community college system has named a new president.
Dr. James “Jimmie” C. Williamson will be the system’s eighth leader, succeeding Scott Ralls. Ralls left last year to head the Northern Virginia Community College.
Currently, Williamson serves as the president and CEO of the South Carolina Technical College System. In total, he’s served 27 years in higher education, rising through the ranks as a registrar, dean and president at two community colleges.
