“The campus community is elated with the selection of President-elect Fuse-Hall,” said Charles Barrentine, Bennett College Board of Trustee chairman. “She brings a wealth of management, fundraising, and governance experience to the position. The Board has every confidence that she will take the college to the next level of excellence. We all stand ready to eagerly assist her presidency.”
