Central New Mexico Community College searched all over the country for its next president, but most of the finalists they’re considering have strong ties to New Mexico.
CNM’S Governing Board plans to announce Tuesday who will be the next president of the Albuquerque junior college with more than 20,000 students. They have named six finalists, though one has withdrawn from consideration, leaving five vying for the spot.
Whoever is chosen will replace Katharine Winograd, who has been the president for more than 12 years and is the longest-serving president in CNM’s 54-year history.
Board members met in closed session Wednesday and Friday and are scheduled to meet again Saturday as they home in on a pick. Board Chair Pauline Garcia has said that all of the finalists are well-suited to lead the college. She didn’t return a call for comment on Friday.
