Bashar Hanna named new president

Bloomsburg University had a lot to celebrate. The school named its 19th president and students are excited for the new leadership. Eight months after Bloomsburg University President David Soltz announced his retirement, the school introduced Dr. Bashar Hanna to faculty and students Monday. Hanna will take over as president of the school in July.

"Excited is the understatement of the century. I'm elated, nervous, humbled, honored to serve this wonderful institution," Hanna said.

Students tell Newswatch 16 they're happy to hear the new president plans to take the time to sit and talk with them.

"That's definitely good leadership showing, coming down and meeting everyone day one. That really makes it nice," said sophomore Jonathan Schmerfeld.
