Very impressive candidate. He has vision, a strong strategic plan for TRCC, wonderful public speaker, desire to bring TRCC out of the darkness, and displays a willinginess to listen to employees as well as the community.

With the inept autocracy TRCC has been dealing with for the past two years, I would say thus far he has my vote. TRCC needs new blood and someone willing to be a serious student advocate, something it has been sorely lacking.

He is exactly what TRCC needs + he is from out of town...far enough out of town. Unless we have a real change, there won't be any change.

I was very impressed. He had done his research and came prepared. That says a lot about his work ethics.
Great candidate

He is very supportive of faculty and students. We loved his management style and professionalism. Cooper had no management style. He ran the college more like a factory than an institution of higher learning. I just hope the board is not intimidated by someone with vision, integrity and leadership ability. He seems like a very strong candidate. Exactly what the college needs to bring it into this century and out of the dark ages. Keep fingers crossed.

Someone asked him about that in his 2nd forum.

His answer was that he was gave bad advise by the unqualified business manager of the college who was hired because of who he knew, but as President of the college he should have done his research and he admits his fault in not checking the advise he was given. He said he learned a valuable lesson and suffered to learn that lesson.

All in all-it is not always how you answer a question like this but how you react to it. His reaction was great. He was glad to have it out in the open and have a chance to tell his side.

Just like a presidential candidate in the US, I dont think we will find anyone with a totally pristine background containing no mistakes of any kind. Most professionals have made some mistakes, but the important thing is how they handled it and learned from it. I agree we have to be careful though.

Be careful...he's slick. Just like a used car salesman. Lots of fluff not a lot of stuff.

Sorry...didn't read ahead in the other blogs. Just read where Stephenson withdrew his name. Trust me, you are so much better off not having him in your state. He really doesn't have another job. It all makes sense now. He has applied for the President's position at the college he's employed now where over 50 have applied.

Good luck on your search.
