Shawnee Community College has a new interim president.

The Ullin-based community college has named Kathleen Curphy as its new leader.

She currently serves as Vice President of Academic Affairs at Shawnee and has over 25 years experience as a two-year college administrator for both rural and urban multi-campus institutions.

Curphy succeeds Peggy Bradford, who announced her departure in March. Bradford's time as Shawnee College President was marked by controversy, with faculty complaining about her leadership and decisions.
