Dr. Overstreet became JALC’s ninth president in January 2021. Prior to that, he had served as the assistant provost for instruction at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Dr. Overstreet holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from North Central College, Master of Arts in History from Ball State University, and Doctor of Philosophy in Organizational Development from Benedictine University.

Dr. Overstreet decided to explore AFIT membership at the encouragement of CampusWorks CEO Liz Murphy, a longtime AFIT member. He attended the September CEO Networking Session and immediately saw the value in those monthly peer-to-peer connections, which prompted his decision to apply for membership.

“We are in the beginnings of rebuilding the entire leadership team here at Logan,” said Dr. Overstreet. “AFIT brings together a fantastic compendium of development and transformation tools that will help guide us through the experience. I believe I am always in ‘beta,’ that is, I am always in the process of learning and developing my knowledge and abilities. By joining AFIT, I can continue that development and bring that to my whole team and institution. We look forward to the knowledge we will gain from AFIT as a result of participating,”

AFIT is excited to be part of JALC's transformation. We extend a warm welcome Dr. Overstreet, Dr. Hartford, and the entire John A. Logan College team!
