Thursday, 07 October 2010

October 7--  A newspaper in Clarendon, Texas reports Brewton Parker College President Dr. David Smith is on the short list for the top job at Clarendon College. We have been unable to contact Dr. Smith for a statement on the job possiblity.

"Clarendon College Regents named the five finalists to be the next college president during a called meeting last Thursday.

An independent committee had narrowed the list of applicants down to nine, but one withdrew his name from consideration.

The five men now in the running for the top position at CC in alphabetical order are:

• Dr. Steven Hilterbrand, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs at Baton Rouge Community College in Louisiana.

• Dr. Phil E. Shirley, President of Southeast Arkansas College in Pine Bluff, Ark., and former dean of instruction at Clarendon College from 1986 to 1990.

Dr. David Smith, President of Brewton-Parker College in Mt. Vernon, Georgia.

• Dr. Roger Stacy, Immediate Past President of Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa, Okla.

• Dr. Gary Stretcher, Vice President of Academic Affairs at Lamar State College in Port Arthur.

CC President Bill Auvenshine said regents were unanimous in their selection of the final five.

“All of the finalists have Panhandle roots, and most still have relatives living in the area,” Auvenshine said.

Interviews for the finalists are scheduled October 25-29, and the public will have an opportunity to meet each candidate.

A called meeting of the board of regents will be held on November 4 to name the next president, Auvenshine said. The new president will take office in January.
