MT. VERNON — Educator and author Ergun Caner has been elected as the 16th president of Georgia Baptist-affiliated Brewton-Parker College.
Trustees approved the unanimous election Dec. 2, barely two months after President Mike Simoneaux announced his retirement effective Dec. 31. Simoneaux came to Brewton-Parker on academic loan from sister college Truett-McConnell in March 2011 and was named president six months later.
Simoneaux spent his brief tenure pulling the college back from the brink of academic and financial collapse, including the school being put on probation in June 2012 by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The college remains fully accredited to award associate and baccalaureate degrees.
