Fort Lewis College names new president

March 28, 2010

Dene Kay Thomas, president of Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho since 2001, will become president of Fort Lewis College on July 1.

Thomas succeeds Brad Bartel. 

Thomas has been praised for her relations with the Nez Perce and Coeur d'Alene tribes in Idaho. Fort Lewis College enrolls students from 122 tribes, and they make up 20 percent of the student population.

Thomas faces declining enrollment at Fort Lewis and calls for the school to cut $1.6 million from its budget by time she takes office, and an additional $2.9 million by 2012.
