SFSC hopefuls to visit campus
By SAMANTHA GHOLAR
AVON PARK -- Interviews and tours have been scheduled for the four candidates for the position of President of South Florida State College.
After the field was narrowed to the four most qualified individuals, the SFSC Board of Trustees began working on the next step, which is to introduce the candidates to the local community.
Dr. Marie Gnage, president of the University of West Virginia at Parkersburg, and husband David will visit SFSC on April 3 and 4; Dr. John Holdnak, executive vice chancellor of the Florida College System, and wife Terry will visit SFSC on April 8 and 9; Dr. Paul Nagy, special assistant to the president, strategic planning and analysis at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, and wife Rebecca will visit SFSC on April 10 and 11; and Dr. Thomas Leitzel, president of the Technical College of the Lowcountry in South Carolina, and wife Nancy will visit SFSC on April 15 and 16.
"All of the meetings are open to the public and the public is welcomed to come and sit in and participate in discussions," said Deborah Latter SFSC Director of Community Relations and Marketing. "They (interviews) are classified as public meetings."
The candidates will be accompanied by their spouses during their two-day stays in the community. Residents, students, businesses and individuals are invited to meet and become aquatinted with the president hopefuls.
Day 1 of the candidates stay will include tours as well as a community reception. Community members, SFSC faculty and students are welcome to drop by the SFSC Theatre for the Performing Arts Lobby beginning at 4 p.m. on April 3, 8, 10 and 15.
On April 4, 9, 11, and 16 two open sessions will be held on each of the candidates' second day. The first session will be held at 9 a.m. at the Building B Rotunda. The second open session is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. (on the same dates) at the Health and Science Education Center Lobby.
The interviews with Board of Trustees will be held on day two (the previously stated dates) in Building F Board Room at 2 p.m.
All events will take place at the SFSC Highlands Campus.
"Everything went well, we had no problems scheduling the candidates days," said Latter.

They get a base of like $225k plus benefits. Add it all up and it often exceeds $300k per year, almost a crime!

What kind of money is involved here? I know, the presidents salary is determined by the board of trustees, but how much? The public should know.
