NPCC Announces New President


NPCC Board of Trustees has announced the selection of the new president, Dr. John Hogan. Dr. Hogan will be the fourth president in the College’s history.

Dr. Sally Carder announced last fall that she is retiring June 30th. Dr. Carder has served as president for 9 years. 

John Hogan, NPCC's Fourth PresidentDr. John Hogan currently serves as the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs at Ivy Tech Community College System in Indiana. He previously served as the Chancellor of the Columbus/Franklin Region Campus before being promoted to the System Office.

Dr. Hogan earned a Doctor of Philosophy in Higher Education Administration from Indiana State University, a Master of Arts in Education in College Student Personnel Administration from Western Kentucky University, and a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration from Western Kentucky University. 

Dr. Hogan will begin his position as NPCC president on July 1, 2014.

“I am excited that Dr. Hogan has been named president of NPCC. I believe that he is a perfect fit for our College and community. With his education, experience, and talent, I have no doubt that he will build on our successes and take this college to the next level.  He has my full support.” Dr. Carder said.

John Hogan stated, "I could not be more delighted to have the honor to lead National Park Community College. My wife, Dorelle, and I were overwhelmed by the warmth and support we felt from the National Park Community College family, and we're excited beyond words.  Central Arkansas is blessed with a college team with student success at its core. I am very anxious to get to Hot Springs and get to work.  I know Dr. Carder's legacy of leadership will not be easy to follow, so I won't attempt to do that. Rather, I will plan to partner with the community to build on her work and take our great College to the next tier."
