Alabama Community College System Chancellor Mark Heinrich

Shelton State Community College has renewed its search for a president after the process was suspended by the chancellor of the two-year system almost a year ago to review the system's presidential hiring policy.

A job listing for the Shelton State president was posted on the college's website on Feb. 27. The listing closes on April 4. Alabama Community College spokeswoman E.J. Cooper-Starks said there was no schedule for when a hire would be made. Currently, Shelton State is being led by interim president Joan Davis, who was appointed in May 2013. As an interim president, Davis can only serve two six-month periods as the college's leader, according to the policy.

The position requires at least five years of experience as a full-time senior administrator and at least a master's degree, though a doctorate is preferred. The salary range for the position is $119,062 to $153,634, according to the posting. Applicants are instructed to submit applications to Hockaday-Hartford Consulting, a North-Carolina-based firm.

The firm referred questions about the search to the two-year system.

In April 2013, Alabama Community College Chancellor Mark Heinrich suspended the searches for presidents for Shelton State and Southern Union State Community College. Heinrich cited a desire to review the system's hiring policy to strengthen the process and ensure the system attracts and employs "outstanding" presidents. The field of candidates for the job at Shelton State had been narrowed to three when the search was suspended.
