Valerie R. Roberson named new RCC President
Editor’s Note: The Blackstonian is glad this arduous process is over. Hopefully this marks an end to the dysfunction and insulated nature which has plagued RCC. Maybe now community groups will have better access to the Media Arts Center for lectures, meetings, and the like beyond the small group of insiders who were able to secure RCC facilities. Good luck to Ms. Roberson, from our experience, she’ll need it.

The Massachusetts Board of Higher Education announced Thursday that it has approved the college trustees’ unanimous selection of Valerie R. Roberson as the school’s 15th president, effective July 22.
