John Marshall had one bit of hesitation before deciding to toss his hat in the ring to become the next president at Allen Community College.

That’s because Marshall, who for the past 14 years has served as ACC’s vice president for academic affairs, is quite content in his current job, thank you very much.

“I absolutely love my job,” Marshall said during a public meet-and-greet Wednesday. “If the Board (of Trustees) would like me to serve as president, I’d love to serve. But if the board chooses not, that’s OK too. I love my current job, and I love being in Allen County.”
