Eunice Bellinger has been named the new president of BridgeValley Community and Technical College.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports the school’s Board of Governors voted Monday to select Bellinger as the college’s next president.

BridgeValley spokesman Brian Bolyard said the school’s presidential search committee recommended Bellinger, who was among three finalists for the post.

Upon required further approval of her contract by the West Virginia Community and Technical College System’s board, Bellinger will begin serving July 6.

BridgeValley officials say Bellinger has nearly 23 years of teaching experience and has held upper-level administrative positions at several colleges, including the State University of New York’s Niagara County Community College, SUNY’s Genesee Community College, Massachusetts Bay Community College, SUNY’s Empire State College and at the United Arab Emirates’ Abu Dhabi University.
