MONROE, La. (KNOE) - The Louisiana Community and Technical College System has announced that the head of Louisiana Delta Community College is stepping down. The following statement was released on April 8, 2021.

Today, Dr. Scott Rule, chancellor of Louisiana Delta Community College (LDCC), announced his resignation effective June 30. In a written message to college faculty and staff, Rule sighted family commitments and goals external to the college led to his decision to resign. “I have been trying to meet commitments and goals outside the college that I had planned to pursue upon my retirement from the Georgia system,” said Rule. “I have come to realize I cannot do both. And, with the importance of the work we do, I feel it is a disservice, to say the least, not to be able to focus 100 percent of my efforts on you, our students, and the businesses who need us”. He added, “I humbly apologize for not having accurately assessed the demands of a move to another state and the level of commitment I was willing to make to starting fresh in a new environment before accepting this post.”

Monty Sullivan, president of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS), said, “It is never easy to make a personal and professional move from one state to another, especially when you consider the challenges we have all faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our students, faculty, staff, and the LDCC community deserve a permanent leader who will make them and the college a priority. Our commitment is to identify the right fit for the college moving forward”.

At its April 14, 2021 meeting, the LCTCS Board of Supervisors will discuss plans to identify a permanent leader for the college.

Rule was selected to lead LDCC in December 2020.
