HARRIMAN (WATE) - A vote by the Tennessee Board of Regents is scheduled for Monday on the selection of a new president for Roane State Community College.

Chancellor John Morgan recommended Dr. Chris Whaley for the job in a decision announced last week. Morgan made the recommendation after a nationwide search.

The vote by board members will take place during a special meeting by phone.

Whaley is currently the vice president of student learning and chief academic officer at Roane State.

If Whaley is approved, he will replace Gary Goff, who plans to retire from Roane State on October 31 after leading the community college for seven years.

Roane State is a two-year college that was founded in 1971. There are nine campuses located in Crossville, Harriman, Huntsville, Jamestown, Knoxville, LaFollette, Lenoir City, Oak Ridge and Wartburg.
