Highline’s search for its next president is expected to take another step forward Sept. 21 during a regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Trustees. The meeting’s agenda includes a proposal to engage a recruitment consulting firm to help in the search process.
Thursday’s meeting follows two special board meetings, held Aug. 31 and Sept. 14. During those sessions, the five-member board began the work of seeking a replacement for Dr. Jack Bermingham, who announced his retirement July 27 after serving more than a decade as president.
The board typically meets monthly.
Dr. Jeff Wagnitz, Highline’s Vice President for Academic Affairs, is serving as acting president.
Highline’s board is responsible for selecting and employing the college president. It is composed of community members from Highline’s service area of South King County: Dan Altmayer and Bob Roegner, both of Federal Way; Debrena Jackson Gandy, Des Moines; Fred Mendoza, Normandy Park; and Sili Savusa, White Center.
