Falecia D. Williams ’91, who majored in psychology at Rollins, has been named the ninth president of Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) in Largo, Maryland. The college serves over 40,000 students from Prince George’s County and the surrounding areas, including Washington, D.C.
Williams was selected from a competitive search that resulted in three finalists, says Sidney Gibson, PGCC board chair.
“Dr. Williams consistently excelled,” says Gibson in a recent press release. “Given our spectacular record of local, state, and national achievement and our ambitious vision for PGCC, when compared to Dr. Williams’ demonstrated competencies, character, and courage, she quickly emerged as the obvious choice. Her professional experiences amplify her commitment to access, excellence in teaching, learning, and student success, equitable outcomes, strategic partnerships, and community engagement.”
After receiving a bachelor’s degree from Rollins, Williams went on to earn a master’s in education from Stetson University and a doctorate in curriculum instruction and community college leadership from the University of Central Florida. Prior to PCGG, where she began her new role this past June, Williams held various roles at Valencia College for more than two decades. Her latest endeavor was as the president of Valencia College’s downtown and west campuses.
