Finalists Announced for North Hennepin Community College President
The search for the next president of North Hennepin Community College has been narrowed down to three finalists. Reagan Romali, Jesse Mason and Rolando Garcia will be visiting campus next week and have the opportunity to meet with the public.
A search advisory committee comprised of students, faculty, staff, and community leaders recommended the candidates. During the on-campus visits, candidates will get to meet each of the candidates and offer feedback.
A decision could be made by March, with the anticipated start date of the new president being July 1, 2020.
The previous president, Barbara McDonald, resigned to take a job at the College of St. Scholastica last summer.
