SPINDALE, NC (AP) — Former North Carolina Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton is poised to have a new job May 1 as president of his community college back home.

The Isothermal Community College board voted unanimously Friday to hire Dalton as its next leader, replacing the retiring Myra Johnson. Dalton’s appointment still must be approved by the state community college board.

Dalton is a Democrat who lost the governor’s race to Republican Pat McCrory in November. Since then he’s been teaching a class at Gardner-Webb University and working as a special assistant to the president there.

Dalton was one of six finalists for the Isothermal post. He lives in Rutherford County, one of two counties served by Isothermal. He was the college’s board chairman prior to joining the state Senate in 1997.
