Middle Georgia State College is a step closer to getting a permanent president.

The University System of Georgia has formed two committees to search for the college’s next president, according to a news release. John Black is the college’s interim president.

The Special Regents’ Search Committee, which will recommend finalists to Chancellor Hank Huckaby, will include some members of the Board of Regents and will be chaired by Regent Larry Walker of Perry.

A second committee, the Presidential Search and Screen Committee, will be responsible for finding and examining presidential candidates. The 15-member committee includes college faculty, the Student Government Association president, the Dublin mayor, the CEO of Community Health Systems, the chairman of the Middle Georgia State College Foundation, and the former chairwoman of the state Board of Education.

The committee will be charged with its responsibilities during a meeting Thursday. The committee will forward three to five candidates to the Special Regents’ Search Committee. After receiving recommendations from that panel, Huckaby will make a presidential recommendation to the full Board of Regents.
