Northwest Community College names interim president

Denis Caron's appointment is effective on March 20

NORTHWEST Community College has chosen one of its senior officials to replace departing president Denise Henning until a permanent replacement is found.

Denis Caron takes over as of March 20 with Henning formally finishing her job on May 1.

This will be be Caron’s second interim position since coming to the college in September 2012.

He was hired at that time to be its interim trades dean after Margo van der Touw, who had been its trades dean, passed away.

Caron continued in that interim capacity until this year when Brent Speidel left a position at the Coast Mountains School District to be the college’s trades and natural resources development dean.

Since Speidel’s arrival, and leading up to taking over as interim president, Caron has been and will continue to conduct reviews to ensure it is prepared for the future and for regional development, the college said in a statement.

The statement also indicated the overlap after Caron takes over as interim president and until Henning’s departure will ensure a smooth transition. She will also be taking some built up vacation time.

Henning is off to be the president of Medicine Hat College in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

With an acting president ready to step into place, the college board has embarked upon the search for a permanent president.

“We are very pleased Denis has agreed to accept this role as we search for a successor to Dr. Henning,” said college chair Rhoda Witherly.
