College president dies from coronavirus

An excerpt from today’s Chronicle of Higher Education:

Mark Ivester, president of North Georgia Technical College, died of Covid-19 over the weekend, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. “With incredibly heavy hearts, we are so sad to say that Dr. Mark Ivester passed away last night around midnight after losing his battle to Covid-19,” the college wrote Sunday on Facebook. A local-news website, Now Habersham, reports that Ivester fell ill in early August.
