The Collegian first broke news about President Grove resigning as the President of the college earlier this month. Following the news that President Dana Grove has resigned, the Board of Trustees provided an update on the president search that is currently underway at the July Board Meeting. The previous search for the new college president led to the collection of distinguished individuals from around the globe.
Morton College is hosting a special web page that can be accessed by anyone through the college website. It will let people look over the presidential profile, and on the official website will be a link to the application for President if anyone is interested.
As of July 22, Morton College has received 28 applications. There are only a few more weeks to apply for this position as the search will end in September.
