VIDALIA, Ga. (AP) — A new president has been chosen to lead Southeastern Technical College.

Technical College System of Georgia commissioner Gretchen Corbin said in a statement Thursday that former provost Larry Calhoun has been chosen to serve as the school's permanent president. Calhoun will start on Oct. 1, 2015.

Corbin calls the decision to hire Calhoun as president an excellent move. Corbin says Calhoun has devoted his career to serving students with a proven background of a solid leader.

Calhoun worked as the provost of Southeastern Technical College since the 2009 merger of Swainsboro Technical College and Southeastern Technical College. He previously served as president of Swainsboro Technical College.

Calhoun was a member of the United State Air Force. The Georgia native holds military decorations including the Air Medal and Distinguished Flying Cross.
