Gregory S. Ochoa, Ed.D. has joined the Potomac State College family as the new dean of Academic Affairs.
Ochoa is a father, husband, theater enthusiast and a published author.
Ochoa has been married for 25 years and has three children. He and his family are in the process of moving from Pennsylvania to Keyser. Ochoa and his family previously lived in West Virginia for five years, and he said it is exciting to be moving back.
In his spare time Ochoa enjoys theater and the arts. As a hobby he likes to act in small community theater productions. He once played President Roosevelt in a children’s production of Annie. In support of theater and arts, Ochoa recently became a member of Highland Arts Unlimited.
Ochoa has also been published in professional journals and is currently writing about the impact of an intercultural dialogue college course he helped put together. “I would love to find a way to write about what we do here at Potomac State,” said Ochoa.
The new dean said to watch for him to be present at many student events this year. He said he loves the atmosphere at PSC and hopes to find ways for the college to be more involved with Keyser’s community.
Ochoa took his selfie with WVU’s President Gordon Gee; he is now an official mountaineer.
