Southern Virginia College names Fawson
Richmond VA Times-Dispatch 26Aug99 C4
By Calvin R. Trice

BUENA VISTA, VIRGINIA -- Southern Virginia College has named Dr. E. Curtis Fawson as president, the school announced yesterday. Fawson has served as provost and executive vice president at SVC since January 1998, and has been acting president during a three-month search to replace David Ferrel, who resigned in March to return to business consulting.

Ferrel was one of a group that purchased the college in 1996, switching it to a school that uses LDS Church principles in its operations. Fawson, 57, is credited with expanding the school's curriculum into a more comprehensive liberal arts program and adding a major in computer-assisted design. Before coming to SVC, Fawson was director of the Instructional Technology Center at BYU.

Fawson was selected out of a field of 50 applicants in a nationwide search.
