Former N.C. System Chief: I Was Forced Out

The former president of North Carolina’s Community College System says he was forced out of the job in July, and he believes he was “collateral damage” from a power struggle between a local college board and the state board.

Jimmie Williamson’s abrupt resignation was announced July 31, and he left the job at the end of September. A former president of South Carolina’s technical college system and leader of two community colleges there, he had been in the North Carolina president’s position a little over a year.
