Marty Cavalluzzi has been selected as the new Olympic College President. He will finish his time at Pierce in early 2018.
This comes one month after the Pierce College Puyallup President announced his initial decision to apply at Olympic in an email sent to Pierce staff.
The Olympic College Board of trustees selected Cavalluzzi out of six finalists. Chancellor Michele Johnson announced Olympic’s’ decision in an email to college staff on December 4.
In the email, she calls Cavalluzzi, “an engaged, energetic and committed president of Pierce College Puyallup…known for his open, friendly, and supportive personality.” She describes Cavalluzzi as “a true champion of (Pierce’s) mission, student success, and professional development for all employees.”
According to Johnson’s email, the college will be honoring Cavalluzzi’s time here at the beginning of 2018, before he begins at Olympic.
Cavalluzzi has been the President of the Puyallup campus since 2013.
According to Johnson’s assistant, Marie Harris, a plan has not been set for finding Cavalluzzi’s replacement at this time.
