Lynda Steele, a retired junior college administrator, has been hired as interim president of Mississippi Delta Community College. The Greenwood Commonwealth reports Steele, a former MDCC administrator, will lead the 3,500-student two-year school until a permanent replacement can be found for Larry Bailey.
Bailey is retiring June 1 and Steele will take over then.
Frank Dantone, a Greenville attorney who leads the president search committee, says the college hopes to hire a permanent president within six months. Steele won’t be a candidate for president.
