I offer my congratulations to Dr. Nissley as the incoming president of NMC.  Thank you to all of the campus and community members who participated in the search process. It was open, transparent and effective.  Our Board of Trustees should be commended.

The next four months will race by and there will be much to accomplish during the transition to new leadership. I am confident that we will all work to provide information and support that will assure Dr. Nissley’s successful entry to NMC and our college’s continued success into the future. Holly Gorton, Chief of Staff to the President and Board will coordinate the transition process working with the Board, the campus, members of the community and me.

I look forward to welcoming Dr. Nissley and his family to Traverse City and am certain he will be a great asset to the college and community.
