Hocking College board elects new president
(WOUB) - The Hocking College Board of Trustees has a new president.

Larry Willard was elected last night during a special meeting.

He replaces Steve Holtel, whose resignation was accepted.

Holtel,a pharmacist, is accused of illegally filling hundreds of orders for prescription drugs over the Internet.

Willard is a former CEO of Hocking Valley Community Hospital of Logan, and is serving his second term as a Hocking trustee.

The board also held an executive session to talk with attorneys hired to help the school with an investigation into possible financial irregularities.
