BLOOMFIELD, NJ – When Dr. Marcheta P. Evans takes office as the new president of Bloomfield College June 1, she will be both the first woman and African American to lead the college in its 150-year history.

“I am so humbled and honored to be selected as the 17th President of Bloomfield College. This is truly the fulfillment of a dream that was inspired by my grandparents as they raised me as a child during the civil rights movement of the 1960’s,” expressed Dr. Evans.

She was unanimously selected by the College’s Board of Trustees after a nationwide search by Academic Search, an executive search firm dedicated to serving higher education institutions. She will succeed Richard A. Levao.

The presence of the State in rural Africa cannot be reduced to central governments’ capacity or willingness to cover the national territory: endogenous social drivers must be considered.

Death of Baby June now under investigation as a homicide. (WPEC)

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says it’s now investigating Baby June’s death as a homicide.
