Rappahannock Community College president Crowther to retire in June

Rappahannock Community College president Elizabeth Crowther announced her plan to retire on June 30, after 14 years in the position, according to a news release by Rappahannock Community College.

Crowther said a new president will come at a positive point for the community college.

“Rappahannock Community College will achieve its 50th anniversary on Jan. 9, 2020,” Crowther said in the news release. “The year will produce special opportunities to celebrate the college’s legacy by reconnecting alumnae/i, raising funds and bringing in new friends. Introducing a new RCC president will be a grand way to mark this place in our history. RCC is at the top of its form, and I could not be more proud of my faculty and staff, and the condition of the college this new president will inherit. Rappahannock Community College is well-positioned for this change.”

Her retirement plans include spending time with family, serving on professional organization boards, working on her family farm near Reedville, pursuing personal interests, travel and continuing to support the college, according to the news release.

“Since 2004, it has been my pleasure and privilege to help craft a Rappahannock Community College that is truthful to its founders’ values, and yet has grown to become recognized – regionally, statewide, and nationally – for its programs, services and role in regional economic and community development,” Crowther said.
