The Baton Rouge Community College said its goodbyes to former chancellor Dr. Andrea Lewis Miller and is welcoming a new acting one.

Miller, who began her tenure at BRCC in 2012, will begin serving as president of Lemoyne-Owen College in Memphis, Tennessee, on September 1.

Miller grew BRCC’s enrollment by over 3,000 students through her work launching the North Baton Rouge Industrial Training Center, and overseeing the BRCC and Capital Area Technical College merger.

The community college has named Dr. Dennis F. Michaelis as Miller's temporary replacement. The acting chancellor has 36 years of higher education leadership experience, mostly from two-year-colleges.

He travels to Baton Rouge by way of McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas, and from St. Louis Community College.

Michaelis addressed a room full of business and state leaders.

"It is very obvious to me that the business community believes in Baton Rouge Community College," he said.

Michaelis will begin his job as interim chancellor on September 1.
