Outgoing Blinn College President Harold Nolte is one of five finalist for the president’s position at West Virginia University-Parkersburg.
Nolte announced in October that he would be stepping down as Blinn President, January 31st.
While at Blinn, Nolte oversaw a drastic increase in distance learning and expanded workforce education.
Nolte also oversaw major in the faculty structure at Blinn College, which led to a “no confidence” vote by the faculty senate—spurred on by mostly member of the Bryan faculty.
The Board of Governors at West Virginia-Parkersburg say they will bring all five finalists to campus for interviews and vote to appoint the new president at their December 10th meeting.
