Former NC community college interim president returns to job
A former interim head of North Carolina’s community college system will return to the position while its governing board seeks a permanent replacement for Thomas Stith III, who abruptly resigned this week. The State Board of Community Colleges voted on Wednesday to appoint Bill Carver as interim president. Carver was previously interim in late 2020 while the board decided to choose Stith to succeed Peter Hans. The board announced Tuesday that it had accepted Stith’s resignation after barely 18 months on the job. His departure came days after the board met privately in part to consider Stith’s performance. Carver is the longtime Nash Community College president.
