Thomasville-- After almost six months of searching, Thomas University has a new president, temporarily.
Doctor Charles Glassick started Monday. The interim president brought with him a long list of priorities he hopes to accomplish over the next year.
"This will be my sixth interim presidency. The people who do searches know about me," says Glassick. That's because Dr. Glassick has boosted each of the schools he's headed. His first priority at T.U. is making sure the school makes its accreditation this year. "I've been through several Southern Association accreditations so that experience should be helpful," says Glassick.
Glassick's fundraising experience should also be helpful. T.U., like any private school, has to fight for funding. "It gets very little state money and very little government money," says Glassick.
Scholarships are the exception. Glassick plans to remedy T.U.'s money woes by reaching out to the community. "We'll be able to deal with the people in Thomasville and in the region, and the alumni to make sure we have a stronger financial position," says Glassick.
Last on Glassick's list, but seemingly the least of his worries, is T.U.'s academics. "There's no healing here. We just have to make sure the education continues to be first class," says Glassick.
First class for T-U's future classes, and it's future president in a year from now. "I hope to leave the place in pretty good shape for the new president," says Glassick. One Glassick says he will help make sure meets T.U.'s criteria.
Former T.U. president, Dr. John Hutchinson, resigned unexpectedly in February. He took a position as the president of Lincoln College in Illinois.
