After a three-month nationwide search, the Lone Star College System board of trustees named Rebecca Riley as president of its Montgomery campus April 29. Former President Austin Lane left the position in December after being promoted to executive vice chancellor at LSCS.

Riley, who served as interim president since January, officially takes over as president May 1.

LSC-Montgomery has a rich tradition of not only helping students succeed but of being an integral part of the community,” she said. “I am excited to have been chosen to continue that tradition and look forward to working with the talented faculty and staff.”

Riley served as vice president of instruction at LSC-Kingwood before taking over as interim president at LSC-Montgomery.
