Pimentel Promoted to Vice President

George Pimentel has been promoted to vice president for Academic Affairs at Volunteer State Community College. He has taught History at the College for 11 years. He most recently held the post of interim dean of Social Science and Education at Vol State. He has been the director of the Vol State Honors Program since 2011

“I’m excited about the opportunity to help guide this college into the future. There are plenty of challenges, but also many opportunities. I want to help make us the best community college in Tennessee.”

Pimentel holds a Doctor of Arts degree in History and an Ed.S. in Educational Administration and Supervision from Middle Tennessee State University. He also has an M.A. in History and B.A. in History from MTSU. He served in the US Army and was deployed as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2003-2004.

“My experience as a History professor has taught me that there are a lot of issues that need to be considered when you make a decision,” he said. “There are very few things that are black and white.”

Pimentel will officially assume the position in January. He replaces Dr. Bruce Scism, who left to become President of Danville Community College in Virginia.
