(Castleton, Vt.) --  A former midstate college president is going to become the next president of Vermont's Castleton University.

The trustees of the Vermont State College System has voted unanimously to appoint Karen Scolforo as the next Castleton president.

From 2013 to earlier this year, Scolforo served as president of Central Penn College in Cumberland County.

She was chosen from among more than 50 candidates and will begin her new job in December.

Scolforo will succeed Dave Wolk, who has led Castleton for 16 years. He announced his retirement in March.

Castleton University has about 1,900 full-time students and another 200 part-time and graduate students.
