HCC President Finalists Selected

Four finalists for the position of president at Henderson Community College have been identified by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS).

The finalists will visit Henderson on Nov. 16 and the HCC campus for public forums on Nov. 17.

The four finalists are:

Dr. Natalie Harder, currently the vice president of institutional advancement for Patrick Henry Community College, Virginia.

Dr. Donald Tomas, currently the vice president of instruction for Weatherford College, Texas.

Dr. Beverly Walker-Griffea, vice president for student affairs for Thomas Nelson Community College, Virginia.

Dr. Kris Williams, currently the interim president and CEO for Hazard Community and Technical College.

The candidates are contending to replace Pat Lake, who is retiring in December as HCC president.

Members of the community interested in meeting the candidates are invited to attend the public forums that will be held on the HCC campus on Nov. 17.

The HCC presidential search process formally began in August and consisted of an extensive national search, selection and interviews with a pool of outstanding candidates. Following the campus visits, the HCC Board of Directors will make a recommendation to Dr. McCall. A formal announcement of the new president is expected sometime in the next few weeks.
