Community College Leader Search to be Restarted


The search for a new chancellor to lead the West Virginia Community and Technical College System is being restarted.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that the council that oversees the system decided Wednesday to reassess the search. The decision came after council members rejected the only finalist for the job. The finalist wasn’t identified.

Council vice chairman Bob Brown says two other finalists had dropped out.

Council members will discuss the search at their regular meeting on Aug. 20.

Jim Skidmore retired on July 1 after serving as chancellor since the system was created in 2004. Vice chancellor Sarah Tucker is serving as interim chancellor.
