Richland Community College in Decatur has a new President. Dr. Chris Valdez has begun his second week on the job and has been using his time to meet with all of the teachers and get acquainted to his staff and job duties. One thing that Valdez said he want to concentrate on is building enrollment because he feels the majority of the programs at the school are already very strong.
Valdez said that Richland's economic vilality and possible growth was what made him want to pursue its presidency.
