Potomac State president Chris Gilmer radio spot - Feb. 3, 2023
April Kaull: At West Virginia University, Mountaineers go first. Chris Gilmer came to Potomac State College in April of 2022 as the interim president. He's just been announced as the new permanent president of WVU's Keyser campus, and he joins us to talk a little bit more about being the president of Potomac State College. Tell me a little bit about what you've learned about the Keyser campus.
Chris Gilmer: To be able to have that small town college experience but be still a part of a tier one research university is our real strength. It's really the best of both worlds. There's excellence in teaching. There's excellence in community service. We are the first choice for community service, we're the first choice for educating students, and then we mean to be a good and committed community partner.
April Kaull: What are some of the programs and the academic opportunities that really are unique to Keyser?
Chris Gilmer: The single program that I am the most excited about is the Sustainable Agriculture Program where we teach the next generation of small family farmers how to make small business entrepreneurial enterprises out of saving the family farm.
April Kaull: What's the best kept secret of Potomac State College?
Chris Gilmer: The very best kept secret, and I want it to not be a secret anymore, really the people.
April Kaull: So let's go. Follow our story on WVUtoday.wvu.edu.
