Huron's new principal leading the way

Huron College will see a new principal take control of Western's founding institution, effective July 1, 2001.

Ramona Lumpkin has been appointed the principle position succeeding David Bevan, who will return to the college after a one year absence to teach French and the international comparative studies program, said Dave Bevan, principal of Huron College.

Although a contract has not yet been signed, Bevan said he is excited about Lumpkin's arrival, as she brings with her a thick resume of many accomplishments, such as having served as the dean of continuing education at the University of Windsor and the associate dean for Wayne State University, in Michigan.

"Dr. Lumpkin's noteworthy strengths and experience mesh well with the identified challenges and opportunities facing our college in the years ahead," said John Thorpe, chair of Huron's executive board. "I am confident that her term of leadership will both stimulate and foster Huron's success."
