Stanly Community College has announced that Devin Baucom was named the associate vice president for the School of Advanced Manufacturing, Industry, Technology and Trades (AMITT).

Devin Baucom was named the Associate Vice President for the School of Advanced Manufacturing, Industry, Technology and Trades at Stanly Community College.

In his new role, Baucom will provide leadership for the school, as well as work with employees and liaisons to create a network of support for planning of long-term goals to benefit the school and the college.

His previous work experience in development, leadership, project management and conflict resolution from businesses such as Byrum Heating and A/C Inc., Boling and Hough Heating and A/C, and Commercial Mechanical Contractors Inc., will bring distinctive skills and experience to his new position, officials said.
