The Edison State College Presidential Search Committee selected nine applicants for further consideration to become Edison's fourth District President after a thorough review of all 40 applicants. Personal interviews will be scheduled for Monday and Tuesday of next week.
The applicants are: Eric McKeithan, Jeff Allbritten, Dennis Harkins, Joseph Sarnovsky, Eugene Giovannini, Larry Whitworth, Allen Witt, Jean Wihbey and Peggy Kennedy.
“It was encouraging to see such a wide range of professionals interested in being our next District President,” said Ann Berlam, Chair of the 13-member Presidential Search Committee and Chair of the Edison State College Board of Trustees. “I’m pleased that this search has attracted professionals with a variety of backgrounds. Now that we have nine candidates, our next step is to contact them and arrange for personal interviews with the committee.”
The charge of the committee, she added, is to recommend three to five finalists to the college’s Board of Trustees, which will make the final decision.
Information about the presidential search process, including the resumes and letters of interest from the remaining candidates, is available to the public at edison.edu/president/search/.
