Clinton College has a new leader, and he’s focused on the school’s growth.
Clinton’s board of trustees has named Lester McCorn as the school’s 13th president. McCorn has led the college as acting president for the past year. Former president Elaine Copeland retired earlier this year after being placed on paid administrative leave. Copeland led the school for 16 years.
“I want to thank the board for their confidence in me,” McCorn said. “For nearly 125 years, Clinton College has been fulfilling a necessary mission of educating deserving, yet underserved, students who might not fit a traditional profile of potential college educated graduates.”
