BSC Board of Governors Selects Robin Capehart as the College’s Next President
The Bluefield State College Board of Governors has selected Robin Capehart as the College's next President. The announcement was made at a September 11, 2019 special meeting of the BSC Board on the Bluefield State College campus.
Capehart, who served as president of West Liberty State University for eight years, has served as BSC's interim president since January 2019.
Board chairman Garry Moore noted that, "During Robin Capehart's 7.5 months as interim president, he has secured funding and commitments of support to permit the official start of construction for the first on-campus housing in more than 50 years. BSC is now much more engaged with the City of Bluefield and surrounding communities, and he has actively promoted the College to policy makers at the local, state, and national levels."
"I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve Bluefield State College as president. Since January, I have been consistently impressed by the way Bluefield State College impacts the lives of our students in such a positive fashion. With the leadership of the Board of Governors, the insight of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the communities we serve, the College will continue to grow, to serve, and to lead."
