Keystone College named its new president today, Feb. 25, after a six-month search for a successor to outgoing president Edward G. Boehm Jr.
 
David Coppola will become the 10th president of the college in LaPlume. Coppola plans to grow the college while maintaining a sense of community, he said. He added that he believes the college is well-positioned for growth.
 
"I think Keystone has been doing everything right," he said to a room of a few hundred people.
 
Wearing a striped orange tie similar to Boehm's trademark tie, Coppola said he had "big shoes" to fill as Boehm's successor.
 
The newly-minted president hails from Sacred Heart University, Fairfield, Conn., where he served as the university's vice president for strategic planning and administration.
 
Boehm, who took the helm of the college in 1995, announced in August of last year that he was retiring. He will stay on as president emeritus to ensure that the transition goes smoothly, he said. Boehm added that he thinks Coppola is the right choice for the university because during the selection process "he wanted to show us that we were great rather than show us that he was great."
