Lexington, KY – M. Dwaine Greene has been named the 24th President of Georgetown College.
He assumes the post October 21, 2013. His selection by the College’s Board of Trustees was announced Monday by Earl A. Goode, Board Chairman, and comes after the board restarted its process to find a president in May when two of the school’s three finalists, Jason Rogers, vice president for administration and university counsel at Belmont University in Nashville and Jim Newberry, former mayor of Lexington and Georgetown’s general counsel, withdrew from consideration.
“I am thrilled at the prospect of serving as President of Georgetown College,” said Greene. “I hold deep respect for what Georgetown has accomplished during its many decades. Quality academics in concert with faith commitments is what resonates with me both personally and professionally. Joining such a worthy endeavor with fine colleagues at Georgetown will be a high honor. I am humbled by the opportunity.”
