Dr. Nancy McCallin, president of the Colorado Community College System (CCCS), announced the appointment of Scott Stump as interim president for Northeastern Junior College (NJC) Wednesday, June 1.
Stump is currently Dean of Career and Technical Education at CCCS. Dr. Lance Bolton is leaving NJC to take the position of president at Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs. His last day is June 10 and Stump will take over June 13.
“While we will miss Scott at the system office, I am pleased to have someone of Scott’s caliber step in to this position,” said McCallin. “We are working with the college and evaluating the next steps for a permanent president.”
“I am excited about this opportunity,” said Stump. “I have deep ties in the northeastern part of the state and know NJC well. It is an honor to be selected for this position and I look forward to getting started.”
Prior to assuming his current role in January of 2008, Stump served as the State Director of Agricultural Education and as the State FFA Advisor beginning in 2001 with CCCS, managing the student organization and State FFA Officer team.
Scott received his bachelor’s degree in agricultural education from Purdue University in 1990 and taught at the secondary level at Manchester High School in North Central Indiana. Before coming to Colorado he also worked for the National FFA Organization managing the National Officer team and the National FFA Convention.
The Colorado Community College System comprises the state’s largest system of higher education, serving more than 151,000 students annually. It oversees career and academic programs in the 13 state community colleges and career and technical programs in more than 160 school districts and seven other post-secondary institutions.
