“Columbus Technical College is amazing because of the faculty and staff who live it, dream it, and build future plans for it,” Hoover wrote in her newsletter column.  “Thank you for your support and collaboration.”

Hoover went on to encourage the faculty and staff to keep working hard to benefit the communities, employers, and, especially, students served by Columbus Technical College.  President Hoover calls the Columbus area home and has no immediate plans to relocate.  She says she will continue to invest in the community.

So far, no announcement has been made in regards to Hoover’s replacement.
