The search for Uayne Ccanmunity College's new President, Pr. Edward H. Uilson, began in fall quarter, 1991. The Board of Trustees reviewed 71 responses; then they narrowed that number to 54 to consider for this pos i t i on. Those involved in the selection of the college's new president were the College May 20,1992 Council and the Board of Trustees comnittees, the Screening Committee and the Search Commi t tee. The Screening Committee provided the Search Committee with 11 candidates from the previous 54 using procedures set up by the Search Committee. The College Council provided a list of criteria used in the selection of the new presi dent. The Search Committee's respons ibilities were to advertise and seek out candidates for the pos i t i on. Then they had to recommend to the Board of Trustees a Screen ing Committee consist ing of 4 faculty members: Cindy Archie, Annette Hawkins, Ralph Leach, and Glenn Smith; 3 non-teaching staffi Roy Uhite, Yvonne Goodman, and Leo Taswell; 2 students, Elvira Simmons and Debbie Clark. This committee also consisted of these 4 members from the community: Reid Davis, Plant Manager, Bussman- Cooper Industries; Bertha Uooten, Foundat i on Board member; Mabel Mozingo, retired Uayne County teacher; and David Rodgers, principal of Eastern Uayne Elementary School. The Search Commi ttee also was to establish procedures for the Screening Committee; establish a search budget for approval by the Board of Trustees; keep the board informed about the status of the search; maintain contact with the State Department of Community Colleges; recommend a minimum of three candidates to present to the full board for consideration and selection; and maintain confidentiality of appli cants.
