He will lead a vibrant college committed to academic excellence and community engagement.

stakeholders,” said Perzigian. “I look forward to advancing the regional and national standing of Clermont College by working with the faculty and staff to meet growing student demand as well as the needs of the local community,” said Sojka. Sojka has held administrative and faculty positions at Wichita State University, the University of Wyoming, Casper College Center and Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. He moved to the University of Rio Grande, Rio Grande, Ohio, where he served as provost and vice president for academic affairs from 1994 to 2006 and president from 2006 to 2008.

The search committee chaired by Dean Andrea Lindell was impressed with Sojka’s impressive academic and administrative accomplishments. During his service as provost and later as president at the University of Rio Grande, he complied a distinguished record in the areas of fundraising, strategic planning, academic program development, enrollment management, collegiate restructuring and semester conversion. Sojka and his wife Jane, a marketing professor at Ohio University’s College of Business, have three grown children: Laura, Ann and Joan. The Sojkas will relocate to Clermont County this summer.

Suspicious fire

MIAMI TWP. – Firefighters responded to a fire at an abandoned mobile home at 3 a.m. Monday, May 24. Fire Chief Jim Whitworth said the fire was at Lot 76 in Lake Remington Mobile Home Park on Glendale-Milford Road. The trailer has been boarded up for about three years with no gas or electric service, leading Whitworth to believe the fire could have been arson. “There was no gas or electric connected so there’s no reason why it should’ve ignited,” he said. “This was a suspicious fire.” No firefighters were injured while extinguishing the blaze. Anyone with information about the fire should contact Whitworth at 248-3700.

Deputies responded and arrested the subject without incident. James R. Smith, 5823 Baas Road, Batavia, 19 years old, was charged with criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct and underage consumption, and taken to the Clermont County Jail for confinement.
