St. Louis Community College has found a new leader for its Meramec campus, nearly a year after its president resigned in the midst of a campus dispute.
The system's board of trustees on Thursday selected George Wasson, the school's vice president for academic affairs, as the new president of the Meramec campus. His first official day will be July 1.
Wasson replaces Paul Pai, who led the campus for three years. Pai resigned abruptly last April, citing a desire to "pursue another direction." That came a week after several faculty members and students complained to the board of trustees about Pai's decision not to renew the contract of the school's popular vice president of student affairs.
