The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG) on May 6 named Dr. Jeffery S. Allbritten, president, Collier County Campus of Edison State College in Naples, Fl., as the sixth president of Macon State College in Macon.

“Dr. Allbritten’s career demonstrates his dedication to academic excellence and student success,” said USG chief operating officer Robert Watts. “We are looking forward to the contribution he will make to Macon State College and the University System of Georgia.”

Regent Mansfield Jennings, chair of the Special Regents’ Committee for the presidential search at Macon State College, added that Allbritten’s “history of leadership in higher education both in Florida and Tennessee is impressive. The committee is convinced that Dr. Allbritten possesses the necessary leadership skills and is extremely confident in his readiness to lead Macon State College.”
