Luna presidential finalists named
The Luna Community College Board of Trustees is expected to decide upon and name its selection for president this coming month.
The board named seven finalists for the position after a special meeting Tuesday morning on campus. They are (in alphabetical order) Dr. Nicholas Akinkuoye, Dr. Arturo Cervantes, Dr. Anthony Hancock, Dr. Robert Munoz, Dr. Diana Pino, Dr. Rolando Rael and Dr. LeRodrick Terry.
The national search began in mid-2018 and was extended in November after the LCC Board of Trustees’ original choice, Dr. Bruce Moses, withdrew his name from consideration. Dr. Jeremy Moreland, who had been one of the original finalists, recently accepted another position.
Three of the individuals were named as finalists in September.
Akinkuoye, Cervantes, Munoz and Rael appeared in public forums Jan. 24-25, fielding questions from audience members. Members of the campus community have had opportunity to provide the board anonymous feedback on the candidates. Original finalists¬¬—a group which included Hancock, Pino and Terry—also appeared in public forums, with feedback solicited from the campus community.
