State Board Committee to Certify Finalists for Germanna Community College Presidency
RICHMOND – A committee of the State Board for Community Colleges will meet on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in the Board Room of the System Office at 300 Arboretum Place, Suite 200, Richmond, VA, to certify a panel of finalists under consideration to become the next President of Germanna Community College.
Dr. David Sam, who has served as Germanna’s president for nearly a decade, announced last summer that he would retire at the end of the current academic year.
The process to replace Sam has attracted more than 100 applicants. Each of the finalists certified by the Board will spend a day on campus between Monday, March 20 and Thursday, March 30, 2017, to meet with faculty, staff, students and community members.
