CFCC Levy director moving to main campus

Dr. Rayanne Giddis, director of  Central Florida Community College's Levy Center since 1998, is leaving to take a higher position within the college in Ocala.

She will become dean of Academic Foundations — a newly created position — at the Ocala Campus.

Giddis, who has been active in the Chiefland community, including holding office in the Chiefland Rotary Club, said while her dream job is to become the first provost of the planned CFCC Levy campus, the current economic situation has deferred that. Shrinking state revenues mean no money is available to build the planned $12 million campus, although the school has secured about $4 million in land and donations.

“That may be a couple of years, three years away and I've worked really hard to make what we had here,” Giddis said. “What there is going on, I feel very much a part of but we cannot grow a whole lot in this facility. And my opportunities to grow mean I would have to do something different for a while.”

Giddis said she informed her staff of the move on Monday.
