Dr. Dan Lunsford has been appointed interim president of Mars Hill College in Western North Carolina.

Lunsford assumes leadership following the resignations of President A. Max Lennon and Chancellor Robert E. Knott, which were announced Jan. 24.
The executive committee of the college's board of trustees appointed Lunsford its interim president on Jan. 25.
Lunsford has served as the college's dean of its School of Education and Leadership since October 1998.
"With a measure of reluctance and a great sense of humility, I have agreed to accept the unanimous offer of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees to serve as Interim President of the College, effective immediately," said Lunsford.
He continued, "I do this for two reasons: my concern for, and devotion to, Mars Hill College and my absolute respect and appreciation for the faculty and staff of the college."
Lunsford added that he hopes to lead the college forward in "a constructive, positive manner, focusing on what Mars Hill College is about: teaching and learning in the Mars Hill environment."

Dr. Dan Lunsford and these retirees: principal Julia Trimble Redden; basketball coaches-teachers Drew Brannon and Rick Wood, first-ever Child Nutrition Director Ruth Sass; and teachers Bobbie L. Caldwell, Madeleine C. Duncan, Linda B. Flynn and Sara Lee Nickell.

"We have a college administrator (Lunsford), who was our superintendent for the merger.
Lunsford was superintendent for eight years, not quite a full decade locally.
Dr. Dan Lunsford shepherded in the merger of city and county schools in 1993, despite much objections initially. His innovations include requiring athletic directors be assistant principals and head coaches, alternative school, Junior ROTC at East and West Henderson, lighting at baseball fields, and a food service warehouse. Supplemental teacher salary was uniform, in his era. He has been president of Mars Hill since 2002. Mars Hill expanded into a full university last August. Lunsford is the most recent superintendent to join the HCEF Hall of Fame.
