EL PASO - The president of El Paso Community College said goodbye to El Paso in style today.
Doctor Richard Rhodes was awarded at today's county commissioner's meeting.
County leaders commended him for his community involvement, and for increasing enrollment at EPCC.
Rhodes joined EPCC 10-years ago. He's headed to the capital to be president of Austin Community College, but Rhodes says he is leaving EPCC in good hands.
"We have an impressive team so I'm just one person but the team is what makes the difference," Rhodes said. "It's the strong partnerships, the relationships."
Rhodes starts his new job September 1st in Austin. At that time, doctor Ernie Roberts will take over as the interim president of EPCC.
