Jenny Varner Named the Fifth President of Davidson-Davie Community College in North Carolina

The board of trustees of Davidson-Davie Community College in Thomasville, North Carolina, has selected Jenny Varner as the next president of the college. Varner will serve as the fifth president in the school’s 60-year history.

Davidson-Davie Community College enrolls just under 4,000 students, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up 65 percent of the student body.

Varner, who has served as acting president since July, has been at the college since 2008 and was previously vice president for external affairs and executive director of the college’s foundation. Prior to coming to Davidson-Davie, she worked for U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole and for NASPA, the student affairs professional organization.

“I have been so fortunate to have worked side-by-side with the most dedicated colleagues and board members for the last 15 years as we focused on the education and success of our students and the Davidson and Davie communities,” said Varner. “And now, together, we have a 60-year legacy to uphold as we honor the past, build on our successes, and chart the future of this amazing college.”

Varner holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in public policy from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
