CRAFTSBURY COMMON, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont's smallest four-year college has named its new president.
Forty-four-year-old Matthew Derr is joining Sterling College in the fall.
Derr helped lead an alumni capital campaign that raised about $15 million to revive Antioch College in Ohio, which reopened last year.
Derr received a degree in history from Antioch in 1989. He served as interim president of the college before the reopening. Before that, he was associate head of the Walnut Hill School, a boarding school near Boston.
He succeeds Will Wootton, who is retiring. Wootton has been president since 2006.
The Burlington Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/IH2mh8 ) Sterling has an enrollment of about 100 students. Its hands-on environmental focus emphasizes mastering an ax and crosscut saw; growing food; and taking winter camping trips without tents.
