Dyersburg State Community College President Karen Bowyer has announced four promotions that restructure the organization of the college.
In their new roles, J. Dan Gullett, Larenda Fultz, Dr. Jamie Frakes and Dr. Kay Patterson will help the college continue to improve its services to students.
Upon the retirement of dean of student services Larry Chapman, Gullett — assistant vice president for academic affairs — will assume the title of assistant vice president for academic and student affairs. He will be in charge of all student services for the college.
He began his career at DSCC as a financial aid counselor and soon thereafter as admissions counselor. He was named coordinator of admissions and records and then director. He was named Outstanding Staff Member three times and in January 2005 was promoted to assistant vice president for academic affairs.
Ms. Fultz, admissions counselor, has been named dean of student services.
She has served as admissions counselor since 2006. Prior to this, she was a financial aid counselor for over five years, secretary in the Developmental Studies Program for three years and admissions and records clerk for 41/2 years. She was often recognized by her colleagues.
Dr. Frakes, director of the DSCC Small Business Development Center, has been named dean of the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center at Tipton County. He will assume these duties upon the May 31 retirement of center director and dean of business and technology Doug Teague, who will take a post-retirement faculty position in economics.
Frakes began work at DSCC in December 1994 as director of the Title III Grant Program. Later, he was promoted to director of the Small Business Development Center.
The divisions of arts and sciences and business and technology will be combined. Dean of arts and sciences Ms. Patterson will assume oversight of the new division as assistant vice president for Learning.
Ms. Patterson began her tenure at DSCC in 1990 as assistant professor of reading and study skills. She later assumed the role of director of college preparatory studies and has held the position of dean of arts and sciences the past five years.
