The board of trustees of Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, has named Cynthia Warrick as the seventh president of the historically Black college.

Earlier in her career, Dr. Warrick taught at Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina, Howard University in Washington, D.C., Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, and the University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston.

  3. Congratulations, Dr. Warrick! I was afraid it was going to be “always a bridesmaid and never a bride!” You will do good. You would have been president at SCSU if it weren’t for the Aliens that were in charge at the time. We wish you well!
