David Pierce, chancellor of the Virginia community-college system, has been named the new president of the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges.
He succeeds Dale Parnell, president of the group since 1981, who resigned last year to take a teaching job at Oregon State University in Corvallis.
Mr. Pierce will assume his new duties this summer.
Corrine P. Hill, principal of Wasatch Elementary School in Salt Lake City, is the new president of the 160,000-member Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development.
Ms. Hill assumed the position at the close of the association's annual meeting last month.
