Tallahassee college leaders hope SPC leaves their guy alone



Dr._law_jpegemail_size_medium Longtime Tallahassee Community College president Bill Law has put his name in the hat to run St. Petersburg College after Carl Kuttler leaves.

TCC officials hope he doesn't get the job.

"We obviously would like to have Dr. Law as long as he is able to serve in this position," Board of Trustees chairwoman Karen Moore told the Tallahassee Democrat.

Law told his board that he had not applied to any other jobs, and he would not seek others if the SPC position doesn't come his way. But St. Pete College, with its multiple campuses, offers a professional challenge he hasn't yet tackled.

TCC trustee Bill Hebrock told the Democrat that he's concerned about losing Law, but he's not yet worried.

"When he does leave, we'll do our job and find another diamond in the rough, another president of world-class caliber," he said. "And that's exactly what Bill Law is."
