Hulon looks to build on vision at Co-Lin

Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s incoming president is someone very familiar to the college and the community. Jane Hulon, currently vice president of the Wesson campus, was chosen to succeed Ronnie Nettles Thursday.

She will be the college’s eighth president and its first female president.

That the Board of Trustees chose to seek Nettles’ replacement from within the college shows that they believe in the vision Nettles created and implemented during his tenure. Hulon will no doubt build upon that.

“I am extremely grateful for the confidence that the Board of Trustees has shown in me and am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead Co-Lin in a presidential capacity,” said Hulon. “My dedication to the outstanding student body and dedicated employees has been unwavering.  In my 16 years at the college, I have served in a variety of executive leadership roles that have prepared me for this extraordinary opportunity. It will be an honor to follow in the footsteps of phenomenal educational leaders and to serve Copiah-Lincoln Community College as its eighth president.”

Her experience includes academic, career-technical, student services, institutional development, information technology, business services, athletics, workforce and other non-credit areas, according to information from the college.

Hulon is a graduate of Southern Miss and Mississippi State, and spent her career in education in Mississippi. In past positions at Co-Lin, she has served as the vice president of instructional services, academic dean of instruction and director of planning and research.

We congratulate Hulon and look forward to the great things she will accomplish at Co-Lin.
