The four finalists will be visiting campus over the next two weeks for oncampus interviews, and the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees is expected to make a hiring recommendation to the Board at the meeting on May 17.

“It is our goal to select the most appropriate candidate that will benefit both the institution and the community,” stated Dr. Ron Ingle, Interim President and Search Committee Chair. “We were fortunate to have a large applicant pool of very qualified candidates.
