Dr. Nicole Roades has been selected to replace Dr. Kevin Boys as president of Southern State Community College in July 2022.
Roades, currently the SSCC vice president of academic affairs, was appointed Wednesday by the Southern State Board of Trustees at its regular meeting. She will assume the position July 1.
Roades has served in her position since 2016 and has an extensive history with the college dating back to 1998, when she joined the college as the enrollment coordinator following her time as a student and graduate.
"The Board of Trustees is excited for the opportunity to have Dr. Roades lead the college into the future,” said board Chairman Brian Prickett. “Having the ability to hire a high-quality individual that has grown from student to college president is really what Southern State Community College is all about."
