Highline College’s search for its next leader will have the help of a recruitment consulting firm. During a public meeting Sept. 21, the college’s Board of Trustees voted to release a request for quote (RFQ) for a consultant to help in the search to replace Dr. Jack Bermingham.
The RFQ is expected to be released by the end of the month to firms specializing in higher education recruitment.
Bermingham announced his retirement July 27 after serving more than a decade as president.
Dr. Jeff Wagnitz, Highline’s Vice President for Academic Affairs, is serving as acting president.
The dates of future board meetings and minutes from previous meetings, including action taken, are available on the Meeting Agendas and Minutes page.
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.
