WCC Names Interim President, New Trustees

Former County Executive Andrew Spano is among those joining the Westchester Community College board.

While Westchester Community College seeks a new president to replace Joseph Hankins, who retired after 42 years in the role, the college has appointed one of its faculty members to serve in the interim.

In addition, WCC has appointed four new board members.

Dr. John F. M. Flynn began work as Interim President earlier this month, said college spokesman Patrick Hennessey. 

Dr. Flynn was the college’s Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs from 1983 to 2005. He then returned to the ranks of fulltime faculty at the college. This will be the second time that Dr. Flynn has served as an Interim President of a SUNY institution. In 1992-1993, he was Interim President of Rockland Community College, Hennessey said.

New appointees on WCC's board are:
  • Robin Bikkal, attorney
  • Dr. Norman Jacknis, Cisco executive, former Director of Information Technology for the County of Westchester
  • John Nonna, an attorney, former Westchester County Legislator, and former Mayor of Pleasantville
  • Andrew J. Spano, former Westchester County Executive
