Cape Fear Community College chooses N.C. Association of Community College Trustees to help find its next president
March 24, 2012
It's the second attempt at retirement for Cape Fear Community College President Eric McKeithan, and the college will have a familiar face to guide them through the process to find his replacement.
The college's board of trustees on Thursday unanimously chose the N.C. Association of Community College Trustees (NCACCT), led by president Donny Hunter, to navigate the search for a new leader. Hunter formerly held the top position at Hockaday Hunter and Associates, the private firm that CFCC used during McKeithan's first retirement.
The board received proposals from NCACCT and Capital Development Services, two of the three firms that had originally shown interest. Gold Hill Associates declined to submit one.
NCACCT is comprised of the boards of trustees of community colleges in the state, but they also provide consulting services.
