Central Carolina Technical College names interim president after Mikota resigns

A familiar face will lead Central Carolina Technical College in the interim.

Terry Booth was appointed as interim president by the CCTC Area Commission, the college announced Wednesday, moving into the position after having worked at CCTC for the past 30 years.

Booth replaces Michael Mikota, who announced his resignation in May to take a position at another technical college in South Carolina. Booth served as interim president prior to Mikota's hiring in 2017 and currently serves as vice president for business affairs, a role she has held since 1999. She earlier served as accounting director from 1990 to 1999.

Booth is responsible for the college's human resources, information systems, capital projects, physical plant, accounting and budgeting, purchasing, security, auxiliary and internal services.

She is a certified public accountant and a certified government finance officer. She is a graduate of the College Business Management Institute in Lexington, Kentucky, the APPA Institute for Facilities Management and of Leadership Sumter. She holds a Master of Public Administration from Troy State University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Accounting from the University of South Carolina.

She has been a member of Government Finance Officers Association since 1992 and has served as treasurer and finance chair of Dalzell United Methodist Church for more than 21 years and previously as treasurer of the Sumter Sunrise Rotary Club for five years.

The CCTC Area Commission has initiated a plan to search for a new president. That process typically takes six to nine months.
