Kandi Deitemeyer

Kandi Deitemeyer has spent her 30+ year career in higher education. She currently serves as
president of Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, North Carolina. Throughout
her professional career she has led with purpose to impact and transform lives.

Kandi is a leader best described as engaging, collaborative, and energetic. She has an
unmatched passion for the student experience and has strategically focused Central Piedmont
on ensuring student success is at the heart of all that it undertakes.

Kandi brings her high-impact energy and engagement to many local, statewide, and national
efforts. Yet, it is her commitment to her faith and family that is most important to her.

Kandi enjoys spending time with her family, prefers the call of the mountains, and would hike
every day if she could. She would describe the best day as having just a few simple things:
quiet time, a cup (or 2) of great coffee, a few moments with hubby, and seeing joy in her
daughter’s eyes.

Kandi and her husband, Gary, and their daughter Zoe were personally impacted by the mission
of Roc Solid in 2011. Since that time, they have been avid supporters and champions of building
hope. It is safe to say, Kandi is a proud mama bear!
