Scott Gore Appointed New Division Chair, Fine and Performing Arts at Carroll Community College
Scott Gore has been appointed to a newly formed position as Division Chair, Fine and Performing Arts, at Carroll Community College (Carroll). The position oversees the theater, art, music, speech, and computer graphics departments at the college.
Most recently, Gore was program director of the Computer Graphics program at Carroll. In that position, he developed and implemented a new computer graphics curriculum, wrote an academic program assessment, managed academic programs, supervised and mentored faculty and staff, evaluated current hardware and software trends, and taught computer graphics courses.
Prior to joining Carroll in this capacity, Gore was program director for Bradley Academy for the Visual arts, senior designer for WPMT Fox 43, and a partner in a digital archival printing business.
"My vision for the division is to have a strong presence in the fine and performing arts area that attracts students to the campus to study these disciplines," Gore said. "I want Carroll to develop a name recognition that tells people our level of education in performing and fine arts is excellent."
"It is my pleasure to see that Mr. Gore has accepted this position," said Dr. Faye Pappalardo, president of Carroll Community College.
"Developing the fine and performing arts has been a high priority for the college," said Dr. James Ball, vice-president for academic and student affairs, and dean of the college. "This organizational change is emblematic of its importance. Mr. Gore is an extremely capable, talented, and experienced individual. I am very excited to hire him as the chair of the new division. I look forward to great energy and creativity from this fast-growing area of the college."
Gore has a Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design degree from Towson University and a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Millersville University.
He is a resident of York, Pa.
