NGCSU president makes administrative appointments

By by Ken Stanford
DAHLONEGA - After announcing that Linda Roberts-Betsch will serve as North Georgia
College & State University's interim vice president for Academic Affairs until a new VPAA is appointed, President Nathaniel Hanford appointed two retired administrators to fill Roberts-Betsch's current position on an interim basis. Roberts-Betsch has served as associate vice president for Academic Affairs since 1998.

"Dr. Kathy Sisk and Dr. Terry McLeod both will serve as associate vice presidents for Academic Affairs while Dr. Linda Roberts-Betsch fulfills the interim vice president position effective July 1, 2004," Hansford said.

"The interim AVPAA position is being split between two recently retired and experienced NGCSU administrators in order to minimize the impact on the university that would occur by appointing current faculty or administrators into the interim position," said the president, adding that he did not expect a permanent appointment to occur until spring 2005, after a new president takes office. Hansford has announced his retirement effective January 2005.

"Dr. McLeod will assume the AVPAA Enrollment Management Emphasis position overseeing the areas of Admissions, Financial Aid and the Registrar," explained Roberts-Betsch. "Dr. Sisk will be in the AVPAA Academic Affairs Emphasis position, handling the operations of the Academic Affairs Office, budgeting and other responsibilities related to academics."

On the North Georgia faculty from 1975 until his retirement in 2001, McLeod served as professor of Special Education, director of Graduate Students, director of special projects and as chief information officer.

Sisk joined the faculty in 1981 and served as professor of mathematics, head of Math and Computer Science and as the interim dean of the School of Arts & Letters before her retirement a year ago.
