The board of trustees of the Alabama Community College System has appointed Jacqueline Screws as the sixth president of Chattahoochee Valley Community College, effective February 1. The college, located near the Georgia border in Phenix City, enrolls about 1,500 students, according to the latest U.S. Department of Education data. African Americans make up 39 percent of the student body.
For the past 17 years, Screws has served as dean of student affairs for Wallace Community College in Dothan, Alabama. Earlier in her career, she was dean of student services at Sparks Technical College, which later merged with Wallace Community College.
In accepting her new post, Screws stated “I’ve seen first-hand what an incredible impact Alabama’s community colleges can have on students and communities, and I’m excited to continue that mission at Chattahoochee Valley. It is an honor to be selected to serve in this capacity.”
