Newspaper editor Charlotte Hall will become the first woman to head Kalamazoo College's Board of Trustees. Hall will take over from current board chairman Don Parfet in June.

Hall was an editor at several newspapers, including the Orlando Sentinel. She's also the chairwoman of the American Society of News Editors and is a visiting professor of journalism and Washington and Lee University.

Hall graduated from K College in 1966. She says her top priorities include enlarging the college's financial base and attracting more students.
