CLEVELAND (AP) — A new president has been selected for Ohio's largest community college, and he's already familiar with the territory.

Trustees of Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland selected Alex Johnson to succeed Jerry Sue Thornton as president.

Johnson led the college's Metropolitan campus from 1993 to 2003. He is currently president of the Community College of Allegheny County, which has nine campuses and centers in the Pittsburgh area.

Since leaving Tri-C in 2003, he also served as chancellor of Delgado Community College in New Orleans.

The outgoing president served 21 years in Tri-C's top job. Thornton's retirement is effective June 30.
