Two transitions in leadership were announced yesterday at York College.
Dr. Billy Lones, associate professor of criminal justice, has been appointed dean of York College Online. This is a new position, created to oversee the growth of online programs. A Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction was recently added to the online college and the first cohort has started through the program.
This spring, York College Online began offering a bachelor's of business with an emphasis in health care information management. A bachelor's of science in criminal justice will be added in the coming months.
Tim Lewis is stepping down from the campus ministry position he has held for the past ten years and moving to the classroom. For the past few semesters, Lewis, who has an MBA, has served as an adjunct instructor in the business department. This fall, he will move to teaching in the business department full time, overseeing the sports management majors.
York College will hire a new full time campus minister for the 2014-15 school year.
In the interim, Willie Sanchez, vice president for admissions, will assume the role. Sanchez has a B.S. in religious education and an M.A. in ministry.
Prior to his position at York College, Sanchez served as a youth minister for more than 20 years.
Sanchez will continue to guide admissions, working closely with David Odom, director of admissions. Odom will assume more of the day-to-day operations. Sanchez will be working with the Student Development Office to present a model for campus ministry going forward after this year of transition.
