The search is underway for the next president of one higher education system.
The Hazard Community and Technical College Board of Directors met with KCTCS president, Dr. Mike McCall, to learn more about the process.
Dr. Allen Goben served as president for several years leaving to accept the same position at an Illinois system. McCall says this will be a national search, as they try to find someone to take HCTC to higher levels.
"It's critical that the right person be selected. Someone who understands the right needs of this community, the right needs of this college, and the needs of our system," said McCall.
Three finalists will be brought in for interviews in November, and McCall says the next president will be announced in December.
