SRJC is nearing the end of its search for a new president, again. The hiring committee has narrowed the field to two candidates, Dr. Frank Chong and Dr. Joel Kinnamon, who will be presented to the school in two forums next week.
Chong will address the school on Oct. 31, taking questions from the students, staff and faculty in a forum held at 3:15 p.m. in Newman Auditorium and telecast to the Mahoney Library Reading Room.
Chong has a doctorate in educational administration, leadership and technology from Dolwing college in Oakdale, New York and currently serves as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Community Colleges at the United States Department of Education, a position he has held since July 2010. Before that he served as the president of Laney College in Oakland.
Kinnamon will be presented to the school at 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 2 at Newman Auditorium. He has been both chancellor and vice chancellor of Chabot College in the East Bay. He also served as a professor of management and department chair at Oklahoma City College.
