Aspen Mayor Steve Skadron will step into a new role as vice president of Colorado Mountain College (CMC), and dean of the Aspen and Carbondale campuses.
Skadron previously worked for CMC as an instructor and marketing consultant, before entering politics.
He says he's looking forward to making CMC more visible in Aspen.
"I think there's so much potential to become a really significant pillar of the Aspen community," he said.
The current campus dean and vice president, Dr. Linda Crockett, will return to teaching full-time in the fall.
Skadron’s third term as Aspen mayor ends June 10. He’s scheduled to start at CMC on August 1.
