The search for a new college president at West Hills College Lemoore has been narrowed down to three candidates.
Jeremy Brown, former president of Portland Community College in Oregon; Kristin Clark, vice president of Orange Coast College in California; and Chemene Crawford, vice president of El Centro College in Texas, are being considered for the job.
The three were selected to move forward after nine finalists were recently interviewed to replace President Don Warkentin, who retires this fall after spending nearly 30 years as a campus administrator.
A national search was conducted to find the next college president, which yielded 43 applicants.
A final recommendation will be made at a Board of Trustees meeting on Sept. 22.
West Hills College Lemoore is one of two colleges comprising the West Hills Community College District, which covers parts of Kings, Fresno, Monterey, San Benito and Madera Counties.
