James A. Gray III, a former dean at the University of North Carolina, has been named N.C. Wesleyan College's sixth president after a nearly year-long search.
The Rocky Mount Telegram reported Tuesday that Gray assumes
leadership of the independent, United Methodist Church-affiliated
college on June 1. He most recently worked at the University of
North Carolina as associate dean for external affairs of the
Kenan-Flagler Business School, where he was in charge of
development, alumni affairs and marketing communications.
Gray succeeds interim president Stanley Caine, who assumed duties last summer after former N.C. Wesleyan president Ian Newbould accepted a job in London.
N.C. Wesleyan has an enrollment of approximately 1,600 students.
