MOUNT VERNON—Dr. Bowman Barr, chair of the Division of Education at Brewton-Parker College, is stepping down from his leadership position to enter a new chapter in his life – retirement.


Dr. Barr served in the position for two years on an interim basis after teaching 15 years as a professor of educational psychology and secondary methods at the college. He says he will miss the everyday involvement with his co-workers and the students.


“Although I haven’t been in the classroom these last two years, I have been in an academic environment, and I have been happy. Working in the education field has shaped my life now for some 45 years and I feel nostalgic about having this phase end,” said Dr. Barr.


“When Brewton-Parker College has called upon the expert services of Dr. Bowman Barr, he has always answered,” said Dr. David R. Smith, BPC president. “Dr. Barr will be remembered for decades for the strong leadership and excellent effort he brought to the Division of Education.  He and his wife Lois will always hold a special place in the family of Brewton-Parker College.”

Dr. Barr will be succeeded by Dr. David Moffett, former assistant professor of graduate studies in the Department of Professional and Community Leadership at The University of West Florida-Emerald Coast in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. Dr. Moffett’s first day at BPC will be July 1.
