Northeast Community College has chosen an experienced administrator for its next president.
Northeast's board chose Michael Chipps after he visited campus for an interview on Friday.
Chipps has led Mid-Plains Community College since 2003. Before that, Chipps led North Platte Community College after holding a variety of positions at Central Community College.
Northeast's board president Steve Anderson says Chipps is a good fit because of his love of the state and his passion for community colleges.
Chipps will start his new job this summer. The Nebraska college's main campus is in Norfolk and has
education centers in South Sioux City, O'Neill and West Point.
