Jim Richey named interim president of Brevard Community College
October 24, 2011
Brevard Community College Interim President Jim Richey said he will keep the college moving in a “positive, productive direction” while a search for a permanent president is under way.
Richey was appointed Monday by the college’s board of trustees after the retirement of President Jim Drake, who will soon focus on completing his eighth book. Drake will continue in a transitional role for the next few months, as his contract requires.
Richey has managed the day-to-day operations of the college in his role as “second in command.” As executive vice president and general counsel, he oversaw all college departments, including academics, fundraising and intercollegiate athletics.
