Interim president appointed for Southern Poly

Southern Polytechnic State University will get a short-term president to lead the school until its consolidation with Kennesaw State University is completed in January 2015.

Ron Koger, currently SPSU’s vice president for student enrollment services, will take over as interim president when current president Lisa Rossbacher steps down this summer. He was appointed to the position Thursday by University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby. Rossbacher, who led the college for 16 years, will become president of Humboldt State University in Arcata, Calif.

Koger has been an administrator at the Marietta college since 1997, and has served in his current position since 2000.

He takes over as president on July 1.
