On behalf of the CASC Board of Regents
The Carl Albert State College Board of Regents has offered the position of President to Jay Falkner. He will be taking over the reins at CASC from Garry M. Ivey, who has announced his retirement effective the end of June, 2016.
Falkner currently serves as Associate VP of Enrollment Management at CASC and leads several other important aspects of the College.
“After looking at a variety of applications, the Board decided this was the way to go as we move forward,” stated Board of Regents Chair Ron Lawson.
Lawson continued, “Every candidate has different strengths. We had to decide who we believed was the best fit for CASC at this particular time. Jay knows us and what we need. He brings energy and excitement to the table. He is well known in the community and for that matter in the State. We are looking forward to his leadership. We talked to candidates across the country, and this is a necessary part of the process to see who is available and interested in Carl Albert State College. In the end we decided Jay brings to the position what we need most right now.”
Falkner stated, “I am very humbled and honored for the opportunity to work for this institution. Thanks to the CASC Board of Regents, President Ivey, the presidential search committee, the executive cabinet, faculty and staff of Carl Albert State College.”
