Dr. Barbara-Jayne Lewthwaite was named the 12th President of Centenary College on May 15, 2009, becoming only the second woman and second former faculty member to hold the position since Centenary's founding in 1867. Part of the community for more than 20 years, she brings to the post sound academic credentials, strong educational leadership skills and valuable business acumen. She has used her academic background to enhance the College's mission: providing a student-centered liberal arts education with a career focus and a special emphasis on community service.
