Sonya J. Williams resigned her job as chancellor of Eastern Iowa Community Colleges in August. The resignation was made official Tuesday night, Aug. 1, during a special meeting of the EICC Board of Trustees. The board unanimously accepted the resignation in a meeting that lasted about five minutes at the Scott Community College Urban Campus.
Ms. Williams began the job as chancellor on Aug. 8, 2022, with the philosophy “you have to think about other people,” she told the QCBJ last year. She was appointed EICC’s eighth chancellor in June of 2022 after an extensive national search.
During that Aug. 1 meeting, the board named Naomi DeWinter, Muscatine Community College president and vice chancellor for student development, as temporary acting chancellor of EICC.
