Carol Eaton named first female president of Daytona State College

Daytona News Journal June 24, 2011
The board of Daytona State College made history on Wednesday when it chose the college's first female president. Now the board needs to rally around its pick and make sure she has the support she needs to get the college back on course after a period of turmoil involving the board and the administration.

Carol Eaton, the president of Frederick Community College of Frederick, Md., was offered the job after a 7-hour interview process with four candidates.

Eaton has impressive credentials. She previously served as president of Clinton Community College in Plattsburgh, N.Y. Eaton may have planted the seeds of her job offer when she asked the board in a previous interview if the college was ready to heal.

Board members seemed to say "yes."

To demonstrate that, they made a second job offer of sorts on Wednesday. The board made a wise move by approving an offer to Drew Bennett, chancellor of Missouri State University-West Plains, in case Eaton decides not to take the job. (But it seems very likely that Eaton will accept the DSC offer.)

The two final votes showed a unity of purpose the board needed to demonstrate after its passionate discussion of the candidates -- not to mention the problems of the past year.

The final discussion was full of passionate pleas and intense debate about the right candidate to take the helm of DSC. Given the stakes of the board's decision, a vigorous debate was in order.
