CRAFTSBURY COMMON, Vt. (AP) — Vermont's Sterling College is inaugurating its new president.

Matthew Derr will be inaugurated on Saturday as the eleventh president of the state's smallest four-year college.

Derr had served as interim president of Antioch College in Ohio where he led an alumni capital campaign that raised about $15 million to revive the school, which reopened last year. He also developed an education model centered on food, water, health, energy and governance issues.

Before joining Sterling in August, he was a fellow at the Great Lakes College Association.

The inauguration takes place at 4 p.m. at the school in Craftsbury Common and will be followed by a community barbeque.
