New college names first president

The newly approved College of Western Idaho has named an interim president: Dennis Griffin, who formerly was executive director of the Boise State University West Campus. That makes some sense, as that campus is the location of the new community college. “Dennis is already on site at BSU West and ready to start putting the administrative infrastructure in place right now,” said Jerry Hess, chairman of the CWI board. Griffin said, “I’m honored and humbled. But I am also ready to go to work.”

So, for those who want to work for this new college – which has a goal of offering its first classes by January 2008 – Griffin is the one to contact. He can be reached at 562-3434 or by email at
