July 18, 2016

Dr. Nolan Atkins will serve as Lyndon State College’s interim president. Dr. Atkins currently serves as interim academic dean and was chair of the college’s nationally recognized Department of Atmospheric Sciences. He will take the position when Dr. Joe Bertolino leaves the college in mid-August to become president of Southern State Connecticut University.

“I am both humbled and excited to lead Lyndon State College during this time of transition,” said Atkins about his appointment. “After working for the College for twenty years-as both a faculty member and a member of the administration-I have a deep-seated love for all that is Lyndon State. I look forward to working with the LSC community to expand opportunities for students and to strengthen LSC’s place in the economy and culture of the Northeast Kingdom.”
