DECATUR — Dr. Billy Stewart has been named president of East Central Community College.

The school’s board of trustees made the announcement yesterday.

Though Stewart will not officially become president until July 1st, he will be working with Sutphin in the weeks leading up to then to assure there is a smooth transition.
