Regents name Dalton State president

The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia named Margaret Venable as president of Dalton State College. Venable had been serving as interim president of Dalton State since January, when she was asked to assume interim responsibilities after the retirement of former President John Schwenn.

Before that, she was serving as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Gordon State College.

Venable’s experience within USG also includes the University of North Georgia’s Oconee Campus, where she served as vice president and chief executive officer.
