ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Darton State College introduced its new interim president to Albany officials Monday night.

City and Chamber of Commerce leaders met Dr. Richard Carvajal at a reception in his honor.
Carvajal says in the last month he's gotten to know more about Darton and Albany.

He wanted to let leaders know the direction in which the school is moving and how Darton and Albany State leaders are working together during the consolidation process.

"I've got to get to know them, they've got to get to know me,” said Dr. Richard Carvajal, Darton State Interim President. “We're doing that because we're going to be working  together so closely in the next year as we go through the consolidation process. We need their ideas, we need their help, we need to make sure they stay involved and they guide us correctly to build the institution that we're wanting to build."    

Carvajal says he keeps in contact with Albany State President Dr. Art Dunning multiple times a day.
Carvajal previously served as President of Bainbridge State College.
