Mike Calvert, dean for humanities and social science at Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kan., has been named as the new president of Central Community College-Grand Island.
Calvert will be succeeding Lynn Black, who is retiring after 31 years of service with Central Community College, including the past seven years as Grand Island president.
Greg Smith, president of Central Community College, which covers 25 Nebraska counties, said he is happy to have Calvert be the next Grand Island Campus president. Smith said he believes Calvert will be a good leader and administrator for the campus.
Smith said he believes Calvert’s experiences are a good match for the college. He said Calvert’s first day will be Aug. 6, which will give him about two weeks of overlap with Black.
