Presidential pick withdraws name from Luna search
Luna Community College will continue its search for a president after the LCC Board of Trustees’ initial choice for the position withdrew his name from consideration on Tuesday.
Dr. Bruce Moses emerged from a nationwide search – the first of its kind to be conducted by LCC – as the top choice for the position from a pool of more than 80 applicants. After the board interviewed five finalists, each of whom visited the Las Vegas campus for a series of public forums, the trustees on Oct. 10 voted to select Moses, with contract negotiations authorized to begin.
Over the past month, trustees met several times as part of its negotiating process, obtaining the input of the college’s Shared Governance and Presidential Screening Committee members. Members of the Board had also offered to visit with Dr. Moses in Arizona to finalize the details of the contract.
“It’s unfortunate that our good-faith negotiations did not result in bringing Dr. Moses to the campus,” said Luna Board of Trustees Chairman Dan Romero. “We will continue to work with staff and faculty leadership to ensure our next steps are inclusive of their input.”
The board was originally scheduled to vote on a contract with Moses as an action item on the agenda of its regular board meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 13.
