JIM MANNOIA RETIRES

 

At the most recent Greenville College Board meeting, Dr. Jim Mannoia announced his retirement after 10 years as Greenville College President.  Dr. Mannoia said that he planned to retire around 2008.  Another factor in deciding to leave now was the recent findings at Houge Hall.  Mannoia said that the fundraising campaign for Houge Hall would take years to complete and he did not want to leave in the middle of a project of that importance.  Dr. Ed Blue will be the interim president of Greenville College.  Dr. Mannoia said he looks back on his ten years at Greenville College with a great deal of satisfaction and that everyone should feel proud of what’s happened at Greenville College.

The new building will be 23,300 square feet, which is approximately twice the size of the current facility.  The floor plan has defined areas for Home Health Hospice, Maternal Child Health, Prairie Counseling, a Dental Clinic, Family Planning, HFI, and administration, and a 1300 square foot community meeting room, that can be subdivided if needed.  A retention pond near the front entrance and 90 parking spaces are also planned.
