Meet Dr. Hal Higdon, chancellor of Ozarks Technical Community College. Dr. Higdon works hard to ensure OTC’s campuses and centers run smoothly, and he also spends a lot of time with community and industry partners to keep OTC’s programs at the top of their game. As chancellor, his number one goal is to make sure you have the resources needed to succeed at OTC and beyond.
Dr. Higdon will be hanging out at our Food Truck Frolic event on Wednesday, Aug. 22 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Be sure to stop by, shake his hand, and introduce yourself for a chance to win a gift card to the OTC Bookstore!
