Barber-Scotia College Names New President

This past semester there were no students enrolled at Barber-Scotia College, the historically black educational institution in Concord, North Carolina. The school lost its accreditation in 2004. Therefore, students at the school are not eligible for any type of federal financial aid.

This fall Barber-Scotia College hopes to have a rebirth by holding adult education classes in conjunction with St. Augustine’s College, an accredited black college located in Raleigh. About 50 students are expected to enroll at the Barber-Scotia campus. Business administration will be the only field of concentration at the college.

Carl Flamer was recently named president of Barber-Scotia College to oversee the school’s transition. He was director of the college’s alumni association, a member of the board of trustees, and was a principal and teacher in the public school system in Charlotte. Flamer is a graduate of Barber-Scotia College and holds a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
