SFCC Presidential Candidate Dr. Carmen M. Simone Withdraws Application

Dr. Carmen M. SimoneOne of the three final candidates for president of State Fair Community College has withdrawn.  Dr. Carmen M. Simone, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho, officially withdrew her application Wednesday, citing personal reasons.

The two final candidates are Dr. Joanna Anderson, vice president for Student Services for Casper College in Casper, Wyo., and Dr. Steve Rook, vice president for Academic and Student Affairs for Rich Mountain Community College in Mena, Ark.

Two members of the search committee, Co-Chair Ron Wineinger and Cara Barth-Fagan, will visit the two candidates’ campuses next week to conduct additional interviews. The candidates also will be scheduled to visit the Sedalia campus for presentations to the college community and the public and an interview with the full Board of Trustees.

The board hopes to make a final decision and offer by mid-April, said Gary Noland, board president and co-chair of the search committee.

“We feel confident we still have two excellent candidates, and both are very excited to be returning to our campus for their next interviews,” said Noland. “We encourage the public to visit to view the presidential profile, timeline, status updates, application process, and other information.”

Dr. Marsha Drennon, the college’s fourth president, will retire effective June 30. She announced her retirement plans in April 2012.
