School in NE Ark. will search for new president
POCAHONTAS, Ark. (AP) - Black River Technical College in northeast Arkansas will soon be looking for a new president.
The Jonesboro Sun reports the school's board of trustees on Friday voted not to extend President Wayne Hatcher's contract, which expires June 30.
Board members didn't give a specific reason for their decision, but board chairwoman Sue Gibson told The Sun that they're going in a new direction.
The Sun said attempts to reach Hatcher by phone were not successful.
Black River Technical College is a two-year college with an enrollment of more than 2,000 students at its Pocahontas and Paragould campuses.
Hatcher replaced former President Richard Gaines in 2011.
The search for a new president will likely begin next year.
