Finalists for EICC Chancellor
Public forums will be held next month for the four finalists for chancellor of the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges. Wednesday the board of trustees named the possible successors to Don Doucette who's going to retire in June.
The original search was extended in April after three of the four finalists dropped out to accept other jobs.
The four finalists are:
- Ellen Bluth, Vice Chancellor for Workforce and Economic Development, for the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges,
- Thomas McDonnell, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Metropolitan Community College, in Omaha,
- Kimberly Paddock-O’Reilly, who previously served as Provost at Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri,
- and Sonya Williams, Vice President of Education and Chief Academic Officer at College of Lake County, in Grayslake, Illinois.
Public forums with the finalists will be held during the week of June 6 throughout the district, which includes Clinton, Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges. A final choice is expected to be announced in late June.
The search committee included faculty, staff, students, and residents of the college district.
