LeMoyne-Owen College Decides Interim President Is Best Man for the Job

Johnnie B. Watson was named president of LeMoyne-Owen College. He has served as interim president for the past two years. The college’s board of trustees stated that “a nationwide search did not identify a person the board thought could meet or exceed the leadership standard Watson has established for the college.”

However, the board vowed to reestablish a presidential search committee at the beginning of the year with the hope that a new president can be installed by June 2009.
