Doreen Larson selected to lead Edison Community College


The board of trustees at Edison Community College has announced Doreen M. Larson, Ph.D. as the new President of the institution.

Larson will lead the two-year college which prepares students for transferring to four-year colleges or universities as well as preparing students for immediate employment.

Larson will join Edison Community College from Pierpont Community and Technical College in Fairmont, West Virginia, where she has served as the President since 2010. Larson has previously held administrative positions at Holyoke Community College in Holyoke, Massachusetts, and Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio. She began her career in higher education as an Assistant Professor of Education at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio.

Edison Community College is seated in Piqua, Ohio, and serves the tri-county area of Darke County, Miami County, and Shelby County.

Darryl Mehaffie, Chairman of the Board of Trustees shared, "Dr. Doreen Larson is what we hoped for when we opened our national search for the college's next president. Her depth of experience as a community college administrator and her background in Ohio fits well with Edison Community College's culture at an important time in its history."

The search committee was chaired by former Chairman of the Board of Trustees Jim Thompson, who stated, "Dr. Larson is a renowned teacher who demonstrates a profound commitment to the mission of community colleges to serve their students and their communities. She understands the deep link between Edison Community College and the communities in Darke County, Miami County, and Shelby County.

The broad experience that Dr. Larson brings will ensure that Edison Community College continues to advance while retaining its connection to the community."

Dr. Larson earned her Ph.D. in Special Education-Adult Transitional Services from Kent State University and received her M.A. in Education from John Carroll University. Before attending graduate school she earned a B.A. in Education from Cleveland State University.

Larson and her husband, Len, will be returning to her home state of Ohio after spending ten years in Massachusetts and West Virginia.
