A year-long search for the vice-president of McCook Community College is not finished, Mid-Plains Community College President Ryan Purdy said Friday. In an email to college faculty and staff, Purdy said the search will be reopened.
Michele Gill has been the interim vice-president at McCook since January 2012.
Gill was promoted from her job as the Dean of Student Life and replaced long-term McCook vice-president Richard Tubbs, who abruptly retired after the college president took a job in Norfolk.
A search committee was formed to look for a permanent replacement for Tubbs, and the committee interviewed applicants. Purdy said.
“We brought candidates to campus a couple of weeks ago,” Purdy said in his email.
Purdy said there is an “expectation to have the position filled by the end of this spring semester” in May.
“I am committed to finding the right candidate for this very important position and will not settle for the sake filling the position,” he said.
