I’ll be heading over to South Arkansas Community College today to cover Dr. Joseph F. Shannon, dean of instruction at Panola College in Carthage, Texas, who is one of five finalists for the SouthArk presidential position.
The event begins at 1:45 p.m. in the SouthArk Library.
The hope is that a new president can be chosen before the end of June. The other finalists are visiting campus the rest of this week and next. They are: Dr. Linda A. Allen, vice president of academic affairs at Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa, who will be in town tomorrow;
Dr. Barbara R. Jones, dean of instruction at Louisiana Delta Community College in Monroe, La., who will visit on Monday; Dr. Jeremy P. McMillen, associate vice president of instruction and academic education at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, who will visit on Tuesday;
And Dr. Johnny M. Moore, vice president of student affairs at Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, Fla., who will visit on Wednesday.
All forums will be held at the same time as today’s. Students, college employees and “invited members of the community” are urged to attend.
