Bismarck State College will have a new TEMPORARY president.
The Board of Higher Education approved David Clark as the interim president for BSC.
He will take over the lead role November 1st.
This move is one of the domino effects of a major change the Board of Higher Ed made in July when it fired chancellor Hamid Shirvani.
The board then named BSC President Larry Skogen acting chancellor until June 30th 2015.
Which created a need for a temporary president at BSC.
Clark has been at the school since 1990 and has been the number two guy for ten years.
Clark says, "I will do my best to move the college forward. We have excellent faculty , support staff and we have dedicated supervision so the pieces are in place to be successful."
Skogen says, "Anytime there are issues, I find he is a great advisor to go to and say hey Dave this is what's happening. His advice is always solid and spot on. As well as he has tremendous passion for BSC, the mission of Bismarck State and students of Bismarck State."
Clark says he's honored to lead the school while Skogen serves as Chancellor.
He says the best part about the change is that "he keeps the same boss."
