BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The leader of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System is leaving the state for a job in Dallas.
Joe May, LCTCS president, was nominated this week to be chancellor of the Dallas County Community College District. His hiring must be approved in a vote of the district's board of trustees in November, but that's procedural since May was the board's only finalist for the job.
At LCTCS since 2007, May oversees 13 colleges and more than 101,000 students. He'll be moving to a job managing the largest community college system in Texas, with 103,000 students and seven colleges.
In a statement released by the Dallas County Community College District, May said he looked forward to the new job and a return to his home state of Texas.
