ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- After a lengthy national search, Onondaga Community College has announced a new president.
The SUNY Board of Trustees appointed Dr. Casey Crabill as the school's eighth president.
Crabill comes from New Jersey, where she is serving as the President of Raritan Valley Community College. She is originally from the Albany area and has decades of experience in education, starting as an English teacher.
Raritan was able to set student enrollment records at her current school, as well as obtain federal grants and national awards. She's already served as president at two community colleges and understands their value to the community.
Crabill said, "A strong commitment to the work, a real belief in the open door that community colleges provide. And a real sense that they can be positive forces in their community for education and workforce development."
Dr. Crabill takes over this summer. She follows former President Dr. Debbie Sydow, who is now serving as the President of Richard Bland College in Virginia.
