Robbie Cornelius has been appointed to vice president of instruction at Northwest Technical Institute.

Cornelius, student services coordinator, has worked at the institute since August 2008, said George Burch, president. Burch said he decided to hire Cornelius for the position because he had prior knowledge of the school and was very helpful toward the students.

The position became available earlier this month when Keith Peterson left the position to work at NorthWest Arkansas Community College. Cornelius will start work as the vice president of instruction on Feb. 16, Burch said. School officials will start advertising for Cornelius's replacement within the next couple weeks.
