In a surprise move the current president of Wor-Wic Community College in Salisbury was named the 5th president of Delaware Technical Community College, succeeding Dr. Orlando George who is retiring.
Murray “RAY” Hoy, Ed.D. the second president of Wor-Wic was chosen by the Board of Trustees at a special board meeting yesterday, resulting from a search begun in March; Dr. Hoy was chosen from 20 candidates. Dr. Hoy has been president at Wor-Wic since 2000.
I say surprising because when George announced his retirement, vice-president of the campus, Mark Bainer was a sure successor to become president, even being paraded around by Dr. George. It was considered a done deal.
What happened will be interesting to find out. Dr. Hoy has an excellent background in education; Bainard is an attorney, has worked for Governor Minner, and has served as VP for DelTech for just a few years.
