On Jan. 3, Interim President Juan Olivarez appointed Kristine Babcock as the Interim Executive Director of the Grand Rapids Community College Foundation. 

She will be serving as interim director until the college searches to replace Kathryn Mullins, who is now the Vice President of Advancement and Marketing at Ferris State University and was the previous director of the GRCC Foundation. 

Babcock has been a member of the GRCC Foundation Board of Directors since 2015. She has spent several years working with Mullins, serving as vice chair of the foundation board of directors, and was appointed Chairperson just here recently. 

“I’m honored and excited to serve GRCC and our students in this role!” Babcock wrote in an email to The Collegiate. “I’ll focus on advancing the agenda of these teams and the new President while they search for a permanent leader. This is also a great opportunity to learn more about the college, which will be helpful when I step back into my position with the Foundation Board of Directors.”

She will assume her new role on Jan. 16.
