Pulaski Technical College Board of Trustees selected Dr. Margaret A. Ellibee to serve as its new President.
Dr. Ellibee will be Pulaski Tech's 4th President, replacing Dr. Dan F. Bakke who will be retiring after 12 years as the head of the college.
Ellibee says she "looks forward to working with the outstanding faculty and staff of Pulaski Technical College." She also said "We are here to serve our students, businesses and industry, and our communities."
Since 2007 Dr. Ellibee has served as Vice President for Strategic Effectiveness and Advancement at Waukesha County Technical College in Wisconsin. Other positions she has held are State Director for Career and Technical Education with the Wisconsin Department of Public INstruction and as Coordinator for Innovative Programming and REsearch at the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education.
So far no start date has been agreed upon and Dr. Michael DeLong, the college's Executive Vice President and Provost, will serve as Interim President until Dr. Ellibee begins her new position.
