Hartnell trustees will discuss the presidential search at a special meeting Wednesday, May 2. I'm wondering if they'll be ready to announce the next president.
Sources tell me trustees have visited at least two campuses in the process to vet
their candidates -- Berkeley and West Hills -- and "the board plans to make an announcement of the
selected candidate to assume the President/Superintendent position in
early May," Hartnell Board President Erica Padilla-Chavez told me last
week via an email message.
The three finalists are Willard Lewallen, president of West Hills
College; Betty Inclan, president of Berkeley City College, and
Christopher Villa, vice president of Student Services of Fresno City
