The Board of Trustees of Anderson University (Anderson, Ind.) is pleased to announce the election of John S. Pistole, J.D., as president-elect. Pistole’s appointment as president-elect of Anderson University was approved by the board of trustees during their fall meeting. Following ratification by the General Assembly of the Church of God (Anderson, Ind.) in June 2015, Pistole will be the fifth person in the nearly 100-year history of Anderson University to hold the position of president.
John Pistole wasn't thinking about leaving his job as administrator of the Transportation Security Administration when members of the Anderson University presidential search committee several months ago asked him to apply for the position.
"I was surprised when they first asked me," Pistole said in an interview with The Herald Bulletin on Thursday. "It wasn't necessarily something I was thinking about. I've thoroughly enjoyed the work I've done at TSA and wonderful people I've worked with here."
On behalf of the Board of Trustee at Anderson University, I invite you to join us for the introduction of Anderson University’s 5th President. An announcement event will be conducted in Reardon Auditorium on Monday, October 27, at 12 noon (EST). For those who cannot be present, the event will be streamed live at anderson.edu/election. Pending action by the board and the announcement event, the following reception will be offered:
