So what's happening at TRCC. I see that the new Board gave raises and has made progress on many things so change is happening as promised by the "new" Board.
But, many things seem to be the same. As long as the old administrative regime is around things just won't get to an adequate level. I see that there hasn't been any resignations except for one 'retired' VP who doesn't ever show her face. Has she re-retired or has she been on leave since the board election on April 8?
When will the new president be named?

Wow! If national government could change for the better overnight, this country would be in a lot better shape.
If healthcare reform could improve as fast as we'd all like it to, we'd all be in better health too.
You expect ALL the positive changes to happen at Three Rivers this quickly? It doesn't happen that way, at ANY institution...Be patient...

Well, I saw in the DAR today that TRCC had named 3 finalists. I hope that the folks in Poplar Bluff know about the background of one of them, Dr. Devin Stephenson, from Bevill State Community College in Alabama. Dr. Stephenson had to resign from the Presidency of Snead State Community College in Alabama because state auditors found that he misused state funds in remodeling the house he lived in. Check out the stories in the Birmingham News on May 17, 2006 and on August 23, 2006 where Dr. Devin Stephenson is referenced. Who is doing reference checks on these people????

Don't worry about Stephenson nor the lady from Arkansas, they are listed only to make it look good. Kimbrow has the job, the search committee is just going through the motions. Wait and see.

Fresh, new blood is needed in the president's office. There are good, qualified vice-presidents at growing and successful community colleges who could step in to take TRCC up to a much higher level. "Going through the motions" before promoting from within is the wrong thing to do. Hiring another college's cast-off ex-president (that's what Cooper was) is even worse. The best new president for TRCC is going to be a VP from the kind of institution TRCC would like to become.

^^not true - the board gets the final say, and they are not messing with Kimbrow - he doesn't get along with the board at all, and that would be his sole duty

so, you are all speaking nonsense once again

can't argue with that but people typically expect the worst at TRCC, and good things have been happening

have some faith in the board
