Snead State Community College recently changed the interim appointment of Vann Scott to a permanent hire as the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Mr. Scott has served as the interim Vice President for a year, and prior to that, he was the College’s Business Division Director and Instructor.
“Mr. Scott has done a tremendous job for (the College) in his interim role during a very difficult time over the past year. I am grateful for his willingness to serve in this capacity on a permanent basis,” said Snead State President Dr. Joe Whitmore. “He brings extensive institutional knowledge and strong leadership to this critical area, and I look forward to working with him as we continue to grow and prosper.”
Mr. Scott has been serving at Snead State since 1993, first as a part-time instructor and then as a full-time instructor beginning in 1996. In addition to being an instructor, he has served as Division Director for Business as well as Fine Arts and Computer Science and Technology.
In addition to serving at the College, he’s also served the community as a Boaz City Councilman from 1992-1996 and from 2012-2016. A 1981 graduate of Snead State Junior College, Mr. Scott earned a Bachelor’s degree in History with a double minor in English and Political Science and a Master’s degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Business, both from Jacksonville State University, and has completed additional graduate studies at the University of Alabama and Alabama A&M University. As part of his responsibilities at Snead State, he has served as co-sponsor of Phi Beta Lambda, an organization for students interested in the fields of Business and Economics, and as the sponsor for the College Bowl team.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to lead the faculty, and I’m going to do my best to give them the tools and encouragement that they need to deliver the best education possible to our students. I say this all the time, and I really believe it: Snead has the best faculty and staff of any two-year school in the state of Alabama,” Mr. Scott said.
