BRUNSWICK, GA. | Tracy L. Pellett is leaving College of Coastal Georgia to become president of Glenville State College in Glenville, W.Va.


Pellett, Coastal Georgia’s provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, will become Glenville State’s 24th president on July 1, Coastal Georgia said in a release.

“My wife Heidi and I look forward with great anticipation and enthusiasm to becoming part of this respected institution and supportive community…” Pellett said in the release.

Pellett said he would miss the faculty, staff, students and community support in Brunswick.

Pellett will assume the Glenville State presidency the same day Margaret A. Amstutz becomes interim president at Coastal Georgia as Gregory Aloia retires. Amstutz is associate provost for academic programs at the University of Georgia and had been the chief of staff for the UGa president.

“Dr. Pellett has inspired much growth in a short amount of time and has lived up to his promise to set Coastal Georgia swiftly on a new path of education innovation,” Aloia said.

While his leadership and oversight will be missed at Coastal Georgia, Aloia said, “we have full confidence that he will continue to be a strong voice for the students at Glenville.”

During his 25 years in higher education, Pellett has led academic program development and review efforts, institutional strategic planning, assessment, accreditation and college and university-wide improvement endeavors, the release said.
