Sedalia, Missouri – Jan. 12, 2022 – State Fair Community College has invited five semi-finalist candidates to the Sedalia campus as part of the search for the college’s next president. Each visit will last a day and a half and will include a public presentation with a question-and-answer session to follow. All members of the community and SFCC service region are invited to attend.
The public sessions will be from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. in the Thompson Conference Center in the Heckart Science and Allied Health Center. Attendees can submit feedback on each candidate’s presentation and Q&A.
“This is a great opportunity to meet each candidate and share your impression with the college,” said Rachel Dawson, executive director of Human Resources. “As a community college, it is critical that we include all of our stakeholders in this very important decision.”
SFCC has invited the following candidates to campus: Dr. Brent Bates on Jan. 21; Dr. Michelle Schutt on Jan. 24; Dr. David Hinds on Jan. 26; Dr. Randy Smith on Jan. 28; and Dr. David Braverman on Jan. 31.
Those unable to attend any of the sessions on campus will be able to view the recorded public presentations on Feb. 1 by going to sfccmo.edu/presidential-search.
SFCC began the process of finding its next president following current president Dr. Joanna Anderson’s announcement in August that she would retire at the end of June 2022. The college put together a multi-stakeholder committee to screen applicants that began last fall.
