UAS Ketchikan picks 3 director finalists

The University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan Campus has narrowed its search for a new director. The campus announced this week that the search committee has chosen three finalists.

They are Cathy Anderson, the former Western Dakota Technical Institute vice president for academic affairs; John Garmon, former Berkeley City College president; and Voytek Panas, the former Pima Medical Institute director.

The search committee includes local faculty, staff and community members. According to UAS, they looked for candidates with strong leadership skills, who are focused on student success, and are excited about living and working in Ketchikan.

The committee reviewed applications throughout the fall, and the finalists have been invited to visit Ketchikan. The visits have not yet been scheduled.

The most recent UAS Ketchikan director, Anthony Mansueto, resigned in June.
