David Hietala, vice president of academic and student affairs at Central Lakes College, worked his last day Thursday.

At a summer faculty and staff in-service day, Hietala announced he would leave the college effective Sept. 1.

"I thank you from the bottom of my heart, so very deeply, for the opportunity to work with you... I'm excited for the college," Hietala said at the event, according to a news release. "I'm excited for President (Hara) Charlier. I'm excited for the future."

Hietala will assist the college during fall semester in meeting its accreditation requirements for the Higher Learning Commission.

The college will begin a national search this fall to permanently fill the position. In the transition, Doug Keran will serve as interim on a part-time basis.

Keran taught in CLC's natural resources program for many years. He also served as the college's first vice president of academic affairs from 1995-2002 and again, in an interim capacity, in 2007-2008.

Keran's knowledge of CLC, program review, curricula, and scheduling will serve the college well through June 30, 2017, the release stated.
