Jefferson Davis Community College president Dr. Susan McBride announces retirement

Jefferson Davis Community College President Dr. Susan McBride, who has led the school through state budget troubles, campus renovations and a re-accreditation process, will retire from the school after 11 years.

McBride and her husband, Reid, plan to move closer to family in Arizona.

“Brewton is a wonderful community,” she said. “We would not consider leaving if not for family. We just decided it was time.”

McBride’s tenure at the school — which coincided with some scandals at other two-year colleges — was marked by success and recognition for the Brewton and Atmore campuses.

“I can’t take credit for all of the wonderful things that have happened,” she said. “We have had a focus on student success. We’ve also worked hard on financial stability.”

As budget troubles began to brew statewide, McBride said JDCC looked at what needed to be done to shore up its finances.
