VICTORY TOWNSHIP — Lisa Stich has resigned as West Shore Community College vice president of academic and student services effective April 1. She has served in that role for the past five years.

The college did not publicly announce Stich’s resignation but sent an email to some of its staff. When asked about the resignation, the following comment was given by Thom Hawley, director of communications: “The college does not intend to release a statement regarding Lisa Stich’s resignation beyond notifying the staff, which the president has already done. It is not the college’s current practice or prior practice to send statements or news releases on resignations and retirements of staff unless the departing staff member requests such public notification. Lisa did not request such a release.”

Stich was one of two vice presidents, serving directly underneath the college’s president, Kenneth Urban. Scott Ward is the vice president of administrative services. Following the retirement of the president Chuck Dillon, Stich and Ward were initially given joint operating duties of the college’s administration by the board of trustees. A month later, Ward was appointed interim president with added responsibilities given to Stich.

Hawley said the college plans to conduct a search for a new vice president and will begin the process in the near future. “I am not currently sure of the process that will be used, but expect the president and board of trustees will determine that soon, and initiate a search for her replacement for the next academic year,” Hawley said.
