At the June 1 regular business meeting of the Dallas College Board of Trustees, the Board voted unanimously to name Dr. Justin Lonon as the "sole finalist" to succeed Dr. May as Chancellor.
Dr. May is expected to remain in the role through August 2022.
Dr. Lonon most recently has been serving Dallas College as executive vice chancellor and previously served in numerous other roles, including as interim president of Brookhaven College.
During the meeting, Dr. May also announced that First Lady Dr. Jill Biden will be the speaker at this month's Dallas College graduation. It was not reported if Dr. Biden would speak virtually or in person.
