Clark is welcome addition to Wesleyan

We hope Dr. Dewey Clark will continue to build on the traditions and the characteristics that have helped make N.C. Wesleyan College a great resource when he takes over as president of the college sometime next year.

Dr. Jim Gray, who plans to retire as president of the college at the end of the school year, has worked to make the college more visible, to develop partnerships with the Rocky Mount community and to promote efforts such as entrepreneurship that are important to the community at large.

Hopefully, Clark will help to guide the college in the future with those characteristics and efforts in mind.

With 32 years of experience in business and education, Clark no doubt is familiar with the value of entrepreneurship and collaboration.

He has held executive positions at MBM Corporation since 1990, and he has served as the company’s executive director of strategic planning since 2003.

Clark also is familiar with N.C. Wesleyan College, having graduated from the college in 1982. He is a former president of the college’s alumni board, and he recently started his fourth term on the college’s board of trustees.

We will miss Gray when he steps down as president, but we hope the school will enjoy continued success under Clark’s leadership.

We believe Clark’s past experiences and his dedication to N.C. Wesleyan College will serve him well in his new role as president, and we wish him and the entire Wesleyan community the best of luck moving forward.
