Limestone's 22nd President To Be Announced On December 6

The next President of Limestone College will be introduced during a news conference scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 3 p.m., inside Stephenson Dining Hall on campus.

Dr. Walt Griffin, who has led Limestone College since 1992, announced earlier this year that he would be retiring at the end of the fall semester that concludes with graduation ceremonies December 14-16.

Limestone’s 22nd President is expected to take office in January of 2018.

The search for Limestone College’s next President started in April with the formation of a 13-member Presidential Search Committee, led by Board of Trustees Vice-Chairman David Riggins.

The committee has conducted a comprehensive national search for the successor to Dr. Griffin. The list of candidates was narrowed down to three finalists who recently visited with Limestone constituents on campus. 

The full Board of Trustees will vote on the next President during a called meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
