Dr. Bill Thallemer named LLC’s 5th President (July 1, 2006): Dr. Thallamer was formally hired on February 24, with a start date of July 1; he had been one of four finalists for the position after a nationwide search was conducted by the school with assistance from consultant Robert Parilla and his appointment was a unanimous one by the Board. In addition to a personality described by student leaders, faculty, and newspaper reporters as “energetic,” “enthusiastic,” and “passionate,” Dr. Thallemer possessed the professional credentials to successfully assume the duties as LLC’s President: Before coming to the school, for example, he had been the Vice President for Student Services at Odessa College in Texas and the Dean of Student Affairs at Jefferson Davis Community College in Alabama, as well as the director of various student centers and activities for schools in Mississippi and Pennsylvania.
