For the first time since William Leff officially retired on June 30, 2006, the Detroit Lakes campus of Minnesota State Community & Technical College has a new provost.


After a nationwide search process, Cristobal "Cris" Valdez was selected to fill that position. And while he has only been on board since March 1, Valdez said he already feels as though the job is "a really good fit" for him.
