Statement from Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich on the Announcement of New Montgomery College President Jermaine Williams

For Immediate Release: Friday 17 December

I want to congratulate Dr. Jermaine Williams on being selected as the new Montgomery College president and welcome him to Montgomery County. Dr. Williams brings to Montgomery College a sterling reputation in higher education, most recently as the president of Nassau Community College on Long Island – an institution with a similarly diverse student body as Montgomery College. I look forward to meeting and working with Dr. Williams on our shared goals of ensuring that higher education is obtainable, affordable, and most importantly, equitable to the residents of Montgomery County.

The robust growth in educational opportunities and rigor over recent years has established Montgomery College with a national reputation as an institution of academic excellence that transforms the lives of its students. Dr. Williams is following in the footsteps of Dr. DeRionne Pollard’s decade-long leadership as the College’s president. Dr. Pollard established a legacy of engagement and compassion not only for the College, but as a leader throughout our County.

Dr. Pollard left big shoes to fill and high expectations, but I am confident that Dr. Williams’ background gives him the foundation to take Montgomery College to new heights. I want to thank Montgomery College’s Board of Trustees on their process to find such a qualified educator to lead Montgomery College. I also want to express my appreciation to Dr. Charlene Dukes for her leadership as the interim president throughout this year.

Congratulations to Dr. Williams and Montgomery College on this exciting announcement.
