The two Finalists are Dr. Neil Matkin, executive vice president of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System
and Dr. Richard “Ric” Shrubb, former president of Minnesota West Community and Technical College.
Collin College conducted a nationwide search following District President Cary A. Israel giving notice of his resignation. Forty individuals applied, and the board identified seven candidates for initial interviews with the trustees in January.
The two finalists will return to the college for second interviews with the Board of Trustees and for introductory meetings with the college community next week. The campus meetings will take place at the conference centers at the Spring Creek Campus in Plano, Central Park Campus in McKinney and Preston Ridge Campus in Frisco. For details on the search, visit http://www.collin.edu/leadership/presidentialsearch.html.
After campus interviews, feedback on the finalists will be considered during the board’s deliberations, with a final decision anticipated in February or March.
Collin College serves approximately 52,000 credit and continuing education students annually and offers more than 100 degrees and certificates in a wide range of disciplines. The only public college in the county, Collin College is a partner to business, government and industry, providing customized training and work force development.
