Parkland College pauses search for new president

The Parkland College Board of Governors has announced that the recruiting process for a new president and chief executive officer is temporarily on hold.

The College began the recruiting process after current president Dwayne Reeve tendered his resignation in January. Reeve will step down effective July 31, 2018.

The Ministry of Advanced Education recently informed the Parkland College Board of Governors that the newly formed Task Force on Regional College Efficiency will need to complete its work before a permanent CEO is put in place.

The Board will work with the Ministry to determine an interim course of action to fill the CEO position effective August 1.
