By the first week of August, four of the six Northwest Florida State College sites in Okaloosa and Walton counties will have new leaders.
Patrice Williams, an English professor at NWFSC since 2003, stepped in for Gail Kaltz at the Crestview branch. Kaltz retired after overseeing the campus since it opened.
About the same time, Ross Hamilton, a science teacher for more than 40 years at the college, replaced longtime director Mary Henderson at the Fort Walton Beach joint campus with the University of West Florida.
In DeFuniak Springs, Barbara Jones, the Chautauqua Center's director since 1992, will hand over the reins Aug. 1 to current South Walton Center Director Julie Terrell.
Holley Langille, who worked closely with Terrell at the South Walton Center, will begin overseeing operations there when Terrell leaves.
