CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - After 15 years as president, Les Garner is leaving Cornell College to accept the presidency of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation (GCRCF). His tenure at the charitable foundation will begin in early to mid-July.

The GCRCF has led recovery efforts in the wake of the 2008 floods.

"Leading the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation is a unique opportunity for me," Garner said. "The Foundation is playing a leadership role in rebuilding and strengthening the Cedar Rapids area in the wake of the 2008 flood. I look forward to my new role in shaping the future of the region."
