kandi-deitemeyerSept. 16. Central Piedmont Community College has selected Kandi Deitemeyer as its fourth president. She replaces Tony Zeiss, who led the school for 24 years.

Deitemeyer is the current president of College of The Albemarle based in Elizabeth City. She was one of approximately 40 people from around the country who applied to become CPCC’s next president. As one of five finalists, she interviewed with the trustees, toured the college’s Central Campus and participated in a candidate forum in late August.

Born and raised in Florida, Deitemeyer began her career path at Polk Community College, where she graduated with an associate degree. From there, she went on to earn a bachelor’s, a master’s and a doctorate from the University of South Florida.

Her career has spanned 24 years in higher education, with 22 of those serving community colleges in North Carolina, Kentucky and Florida. She has served as president of College of The Albemarle since 2010.

Zeiss announced he was stepping down in February of this year.

Deitemeyer’s tenure at CPCC begins in January 2017.
