Community College of Beaver County trustees on Thursday appointed Christopher M. Reber as president, effective July 1.

Reber, 56, executive dean of Clarion University's Venango College in Oil City, will succeed Joe Forrester, who is retiring after 15 years as president.

The Clarion executive was among four finalists community college trustees interviewed after reviewing 61 applications.

“Both the board and the campus community felt that Dr. Reber provided the best mix of skills and experiences to lead CCBC through the next phase of its evolution,” said Helen Kissick, chair of the community college's Board of Trustees.

College officials did not release the terms of Reber's contract.

Reber, who has led Clarion's Oil City campus for 12 years, holds a bachelor's degree in Latin from Dickinson College, a master's in college student personnel administration from Bowling Green University and a doctorate in higher education from the University of Pittsburgh.

He previously held administrative posts at Penn State's Behrend College in Erie and at the Lakeland Community College, near Cleveland, Ohio.
