CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Dr. Edward E. “Ted” Raspiller has been named president of John Tyler Community College (JTCC). Raspiller, who will become the college’s seventh president, starts his new job on Aug. 5.
“I’ve known Ted for more than a decade,” said Glenn DuBois, chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges. “He brings to the table the right skills and the right experience to lead John Tyler Community College to the next level.”
Raspiller was most recently president of the Brazos County Campuses at Blinn College in Bryan, Texas. He previously directed the Community College Leadership doctoral program at Old Dominion University.
