SCOOBA — A veteran Alabama educator is the new president of East Mississippi Community College.
WTVA-TV reports the school’s board of trustees selected Dr. Thomas Huebner to lead the school during a meeting Monday night. He will replace Dr. Rick Young, who retires June 30 after 11 years at EMCC.
Huebner currently serves as the dean of student services at Shelton State Community College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Huebner says he plans to listen to those in the community, the staff and students when he takes over July 1. After he determines the strengths and challenges facing the school, he says they will move forward together as a community.
EMCC has campuses in Scooba and Mayhew, with extension offices in its six-county district including Clay, Lowndes, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Kemper and Lauderdale counties.
