Search for new Three Rivers president hits snag

Associated Press - September 30, 2008 9:54 AM ET

POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (AP) - The search for a new president of 3 Rivers Community College is starting over.

Both out-of-state candidates unexpectedly dropped out of the running. Trustees voted against hiring the third finalist, who is already an administrator at the college in Poplar Bluff in southeast Missouri.

Trustees say they will organize a new search.

The board's top choice was Devin Stephenson of Alabama. But he recently told trustees he has taken another job.

A week earlier, Susan Karr of Arkansas withdrew her candidacy, citing family health issues.

The other candidate was Three Rivers vice president for academic affairs Larry Kimbrow. Only one trustee supported his promotion.
