MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama’s largest two-year college, Calhoun Community College in Decatur, has a new president.

The chancellor for Alabama’s two-year college system, Mark Heinrich, recommended James Klauber Sr. for the job, and the state school board approved the recommendation Wednesday.

Klauber has been president at Owensboro Community and Technical College in Owensboro, Kentucky. Prior to going into education, Klauber served in the South Carolina National Guard for 27 years, was in the South Carolina House of Representatives for a decade, and served on the City Council in Greenwood, South Carolina.

Klauber holds both a doctorate in education leadership and a law degree from the University of South Carolina.

Calhoun Community College has more than 11,000 students.
