Simpson College Names Jay Simmons as New President

INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) - The president of Iowa Wesleyan College has been named the 23rd president of Simpson College in Indianola.

Simpson announced Monday that Jay Simmons will replace President John W. Byrd, who is retiring next spring after an 8-year tenure.

Simpson leaders said Simmons was chosen after a nationwide search because he impressed college officials with his leadership, academic experience, fundraising success and management style.

Simpson had led Iowa Wesleyan in Mount Pleasant for the last four years. The Alabama native came to Iowa for that job after working a decade as vice president for academic affairs and dean at LaGrange College in Georgia.

Simmons says Simpson is positioned to increase its prominence in higher education, and that he couldn't be more enthusiastic about starting the job.
