Bob HuttonBob Hutton, executive director of Administrative Services, has announced his retirement after more than 18 years at the college. Hutton added buildings to the college, including Southwell Gymnasium, the Atkins-Holman Student Center, the Gerald. T and Bonnie M. Brouder Science Center, the Rolla, St. Louis and Jefferson City campus buildings, and the Lake of the Ozarks campus.

“After a distinguished career leading various initiatives at the college, Bob plans to begin a richly deserved retirement this fall,” said Dr. Scott Dalrymple, president of Columbia College.

Due to Hutton’s guidance, the college has no deferred maintenance.

“I’m very proud of the progress (the college) has made,” said Hutton. “Our grounds and facilities are noted in the community – that gives me a lot of pride.”

Hutton will retire effective Sept. 26. Read these local newspaper stories for more information:
