The committee in charge of finding a new president for Lurleen B. Wallace Community College will hold its first planning meeting today in the Memorial Room on the Andalusia campus, from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

The committee will hold three planning meetings this month to narrow down the initial list of 50 applicants who applied for the job.

Wayne Bennett has been serving as interim president at LBWCC since May, when then-president Dr. Ed Meadows left to take the same position at Pensacola Junior College in Florida.

The committee will interview five semifinalists on Tues., Oct. 28, and Postsecondary Chancellor Bradley Byrne will interview them on Wed., Oct. 29. Byrne will then make a recommendation to the Board of Education on Tues., Nov. 11.
