Committee takes shape at JCCC – KC Star

Committee takes shape
Kansas City Star, The (MO)-August 17, 2006

It takes a village to select a chief. At least that seems to be the case for the screening committee for a new president at Johnson County Community College.

Trustees on Tuesday chose 14 categories of committee members, including professors, students, lawmakers and a faith community representative. Trustees Elaine Perilla and Ben Hodge will serve as co-leaders of the group, which will work with search firm Hockaday-Hunter and Associates.

The committee’s makeup has some faculty members irked. Vincent Clark, Faculty Association president, said there’s not enough faculty (three) and too many politicians (three).

Perilla said the search firm said the makeup looked fairly standard.
