Terrace, BC, February 12, 2014 – The Board of Governors of Northwest Community College (NWCC) today announced the appointment of Mr. Denis Caron as interim college President and CEO. Denis has previously served NWCC as Interim Dean of Trades and Workforce Training.

“We are very pleased Denis has agreed to accept this role as we search for a successor to Dr. Henning,” said Rhoda Witherly Chair of the College Board. “Denis’s vast experience in leadership roles across the country will ensure NWCC maintains its momentum as we develop new educational opportunities for our students.
