Daytona State AVP named president of South Piedmont Community College

Dr. Stanley Sidor
Stanley Sidor, Daytona State College’s associate vice president of Engineering Technology and Occupational Programs, and provost of its Advanced Technology College, has been appointed president of South Piedmont Community College in North Carolina, effective July 1.

Sidor was selected among six finalists for the job at the April meeting of the South Piedmont District Board of Trustees.
“I am greatly looking forward to this new opportunity with South Piedmont Community College,” Sidor said. “Still, I made a lot of good friends here in Daytona Beach and I’m going to miss them all. Daytona State College is a great institution with a very bright future.”
North Carolina’s newest comprehensive community college, South Piedmont was founded in 1999 with the merging of Anson Community College and Union Technical Education Center, serving the south-central portion of the state. Today, more than 15,000 college credit and non-college credit students attend the institution, pursuing learning opportunities that range from adult basic and continuing education to associate of science and university transfer degrees.
Sidor joined Daytona State in 2001. Prior to that, he served as the director of Industry and Workforce Training and regional director of the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center at Northwestern Michigan College from 1989-2001. He received bachelor’s degrees in environmental science-sociology and business administration from Aquinas College, a master’s degree in manufacturing administration from Western Michigan University and a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Central Florida.
School of Engineering Technology Chair Ron Eaglin has been appointed associate vice president of technologies and will assume Sidor’s duties at Daytona State.
