The Modesto Junior College Presidential Search Committee announced three finalists for the seat of MJC president on Wednesday.
Gaither Loewenstein, who last served as vice president of Educational Services at Norco College, Kimberly Perry the vice president for Academic Affairs at Los Angeles City College, and Mark Zacovic, interim vice president for Administrative Services at Pasadena Area Community College District, will vie for the position after an extensive, nation-wide search.
Each of the candidates will host two public forums during the first days of March to discuss their preparation for the position, their education and leadership philosophy, and to respond to questions from attendees. Those present will be given comment cards to offer their opinions of the candidates to the Yosemite Community College District Board of Trustees.
Loewenstein’s forums will be held on March 1, while Zacovic’s will occur on March 2 and Perry’s are scheduled for March 3. Candidates will host two forums on their given day, a morning forum to be held from 9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at the Mary Stuart Rogers Student Learning Center on the West Campus, 2201 Blue Gum Ave., in Modesto, and an afternoon forum from 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. in the Student Center Fireside Lounge on the East Campus, 435 College Ave., Modesto.
