One of the longest-tenured college presidents in Iowa is leaving his job and the state. Doctor David Buettner will quit North Iowa Area Community College in Mason City to take a similar position at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, Wisconsin. Buettner feels good about his 20 years at NIACC.Buettner says on-going budget matters with the legislature did not factor in his decision to leave, but thinks the college will be able to survive.Buettner says he’s seen the campus and curriculum grow during his tenure. He says the college is financially solid but has “never been really well funded.”Buettner’s first day on the job in Appleton is January 7th. The NIACC Board of Trustees most likely will discuss the process of replacing Buettner at their next board meeting.
