Searches planned to replace two vice presidents

After an initial conference with employees in affected areas, Northwest College President Paul Prestwich said he no longer is considering a change in the management structure at the college.

When Sher Hruska, former vice president of academic affairs, and Dana Young, former vice president of student affairs, both left the college last spring, Prestwich said the college could consider changing to a provost form of management. A provost would have supervised both areas, with deans of instruction and students serving under the provost.
