A Southeast Arkansas College trustee has provided the Commercial with access to the applications of people who applied to be the college’s next president.
The Pine Bluff Commercial submitted a Freedom of Information Act request Wednesday, Oct. 25, to SEARK College Board Chairman Paul Bennett prior to his meeting with other college trustees. The college began a search in the summer for college president Steven Hilterbran’s successor by contracting with the Association of Community College Trustees to build a profile to attract candidates.
Hilterbran plans to retire Dec. 31, 2017. Hired in 2011, Hilterbran earns about $181,863 per year and is not involved in the search for his successor.
Bennett said the ACCT representatives mailed the applications on Monday from Washington, D.C., and that the applications arrived in Pine Bluff on Wednesday. Two people withdraw their applications before the Pine Bluff Commercial submitted its request.
