Memorial service arrangements have been made for the former leader of a local college.

Doctor Robert J. Kopecek will be memorialized on May 13th at Northampton Community College's Lipkin Theatre at 4 PM.

Doctor Kopecek was Northampton Community College's President for 26 years.

He's credited as a major reason for the extensive growth of the NCC's student body over his time in office.

He served the school from 1977 to 2003.

Doctor Kopeck died last week at his home in North Carolina at the age of 76.
