Pikes Peak Community College has named three finalists that will be considered for the president’s job.

The three finalists are:

  • Dr. Ann Valentine, currently president of Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Fergus Falls, Minnesota;
  • Dr. Christine Chairsell, currently district vice president of academic and student affairs at Portland Community College in Portland, Oregon; and
  • Dr. Lance Bolton, currently president of Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colorado.

The announcement comes after six semi-finalists visited the college’s campus on May 2 and 3, when they met community members, students and staff during public forums and at a reception.

Colorado Community College System President Dr. Nancy McCallin, in consultation with the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education, will make the final presidential selection.

The search committee is comprised of student, faculty, administrative and community members.

The Colorado Community College System has been conducting the search since December 2010. Dr. Ed Ray, PPCC retired vice president of instruction, has been serving as interim president.
