Spoon River College has narrowed its presidential search to six finalists.
Their names are not being released yet. SRC said it wants to "protect the privacy and confidentiality of each person."
However, their identities will soon become known. The school said the finalists are scheduled to meet with the public during forums on the Canton and Macomb campuses on Wednesday, February 29; Monday March 5; Monday, March 19; Wednesday March 21; Monday March 26; and Wednesday March 28. The forums are scheduled to begin at 8:30am and 2:00pm.
The candidates will also be interviewed by the board on those dates.
Each candidate's profile will be published on the college's website 48 hours before each visit.
People who cannot attend the forums in person can join them through the interactive video systems available at each of SRC's four campuses, which are in Canton, Macomb, Rushville, and Havana.
The college is seeking a replacement for Robert Ritschel, who will retire after the current school year.
