Charlotte has had several new leaders for its higher profile organizations in the past year, including CMS superintendent Clayton Wilcox, a new Charlotte city manager, a new director at the health department, and soon, we'll have a new mayor.

Central Piedmont Community College also has a new person at the helm, only the fourth president in its more than 50-year history, and only the second woman to hold the job.

Dr. Kandi Deitemeyer is digging right in with a focus on student success and of leading CPCC in making an impact on lives here in the Charlotte region.

Although she’s been on the job since January, this week will mark Dr. Deitemeyer’s inauguration at CPCC.

She’ll sit down with Mike Collins to talk about the many initiatives she has in her sights, including CPCC’s role in helping with economic mobility in Charlotte, workforce and job skills training and more.
