Hoy Appointed to Leadership Council
February 20, 2008
Dr. Ray Hoy, president of Wor-Wic Community College, was recently appointed by Gov. Martin O’Malley to the newly-created P-20 Leadership Council of Maryland.

“It is an honor to serve on the leadership council,” Hoy said. “I look forward to working with individuals from all educational sectors to help better prepare Marylanders of all ages to be able to meet current and future work force and employer demands.”

An Eastern Shore native, Hoy is a community college graduate who went on to earn a bachelor’s degree, two master’s degrees, a law degree and a doctorate. He has more than 30 years of experience in community college administration.

Hoy serves as president of the Maryland Community College Council of Presidents, vice chair of the board of trustees of the Peninsula Regional Medical Center and as a member of the Governor’s Workforce Investment Board and the board of Asbury United Methodist Church.

He is also a member of the Tri-County Health Council and other area councils and committees.

The council, which replaces the Maryland Partnership for Teaching and Learning, PreK-16, is an integrated statewide system of 35 members, including the Governor and his designee, and representatives of the education, workforce creation and business communities.

The council will investigate ways to improve education, advance workforce creation and make the state more economically competitive.
