The board of trustees of Georgetown College on Wednesday named Granetta Bingham Blevins as the school's acting president, effective immediately.

Mrs. Blevins, a 1980 alumna, is a long-time trustee of the College having first been elected to the board in 1992.  She has served two terms as board chair.

Currently, she is a member of the executive committee of the board and chairs the trustee committee on academic excellence.

She was the College’s interim chief financial officer from September, 2002, through May, 2003.

“We are delighted that Granetta is willing to accept this critical assignment at such an important time in our history,” said Earl Goode, board chairman. “Granetta is extremely capable and we are confident that she, as both an alumna and trustee, will provide strong leadership.”

During her career, Mrs. Blevins, who earned a master’s degree in business administration from Xavier University in 1982, has served as chief financial officer for several companies and has held other senior management positions in public and private organizations.

Mrs. Blevins currently has her own business services practice specializing in strategy development and implementation, business operations, and providing interim chief financial officer services.

In addition to her business pursuits, Mrs. Blevins is actively involved in a number of community and civic organizations. She devotes much of her volunteer time to her church, First Baptist in Mount Sterling (Ky.), and to Georgetown College.

Originally from Paducah, Ky., she and her husband, Al, live in Mount Sterling. Mr. Blevins is also a 1980 graduate of Georgetown College.
