SMCC Welcomes New President


Southern Maine Community College has a new president, Joseph L. Cassidy.

Cassidy has served as president of Washington County Community College and Eastern Maine Community College. He says the community college system must do more to sell its educational product.

“As our economy continues to strengthen, certainly as it has here in the Southern part of the state, it's about carrying forward the message that the best value in higher education in Maine is the Community College System.”

Cassidy says with its location and size, SMCC has an opportunity to function as a leader within the System.
