Dr. Clayton Tatro praised McKown’s efforts at the college, “Over the last few months, Charles has proven his value and worth, visiting with multiple departments and individuals to assess what information we need to more effectively perform our jobs. As a result of his work the last few months, along with his track record as a long-term administrator, Charles is being named Dean of Research and Technology.”
