Casper College has selected Dr. Darren Divine as its new president. The College’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously for Divine out of four finalists.
The school’s current president Walter Nolte will be retiring at the end of June after eleven years in the job. Devine is currently is Vice President for academic affairs at the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas.
He says he has a background in agriculture, and that should be a good fit for the college.
“I’m very familiar, more importantly I think very comfortable with the range part of wildlife management and range management, agricultural production. My father spent his entire career in the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service and so that’s just a very comfortable place for me to end up at.”
Divine also says one of his first projects will be completing the new Ranch Campus for Casper College, which will provide extra space for the Agriculture Program.
