The next step in choosing an interim president for Shoreline Community College could come Thursday morning, June, 13, 2013.
The Board of Trustees has scheduled a special meeting for 11 a.m. that day. The agenda includes a discussion of input garnered through a public comment process that ended June 5. The Board is then scheduled to convene in a private executive session for discussion regarding applicant qualifications and/or the performance of a public employee.
The Board intends to reconvene with action possible on appointing an interim president. There will an opportunity for public comment at the end of the meeting.
The college is looking for a new president after Lee Lambert took the job as chancellor at Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz. Lambert participated in Sunday’s graduation exercise at Shoreline and flew to Tucson the next day for the job that officially starts on July 1. He is on leave from Shoreline through the end of June.
Prior to leaving, Lambert appointed Vice President for Administrative Services Daryl Campbell as acting president, effective June 10 through the end of the month.
At their May 22 regular meeting, the trustees asked for public input on the qualities and qualifications that might be needed for an interim president. The interim president would be in place while the search is conducted for the permanent position. Such searches can often take a number of months.
