Indian River State College’s new
president, Timothy Moore, has qualifications
that are especially interesting to
the Treasure Coast business community.
Besides being an academic at institutions
such as Kansas State, Auburn University
and Florida A&M, he spent the last several
years as an entrepreneur, developing a
probiotic and bringing it to market. A military
veteran, Moore also has worked with
two biotech startup companies, Ventech
Solutions Inc. and MagPlasma.
He succeeds Edwin Massey, who as the
college’s president for 32 years focused intensely
on developing a workforce for the
region and working closely with businesses
to improve and expand manufacturing.
The college is in the midst of building the
Advanced Workforce Training Complex, a
$23 million, 55,000-square-foot industrial
technology facility on its Massey Campus
in Fort Pierce.
