Daily Press: New president’s career goes full-circle


Published: October 25, 2011

For seven years, Newport News resident John Dever zipped up and down Interstate 95 to his job at Northern Virginia Community College. This fall, his weekly commute ended as he moved into the president’s office at Thomas Nelson Community College.

His new job is not just closer to home — it’s also a homecoming. Dever, 65, is returning to the place he launched his community college career. He started at TNCC in 1975 as an English instructor.
