Black Hawk College's new leader is now on the job. Last month, the board of trustees hired Dr. John Erwin as interim president.

He'll serve in the position while the college looks for former President Bettie Truitt's permanent replacement.

At this point in the academic year, Erwin says Black Hawk's budget is balanced. But soon, he'll have to start working on next year's budget, and uncertainty about state funding will probably continue to be a problem.
