By Jason Belk - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The McNeese Presidential Search Committee selected three candidates on Friday morning to recommend to the UL System Board.

After spending a week to get to know the candidates, the McNeese State Presidential Search Committee had a lot to consider when offering their recommendations.

"We looked at the experience of the candidates, we respond to and have read all of the comments from the committee, weigh all of that very seriously and then try to determine at least two, by board rules that will be interviewed for the finalist," said Randy Moffett, the President of the University of Louisiana System.

The committee ended up recommending three for the next president:

Jeanne Daboval, who is currently the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at McNeese.

Linda Rinker, the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Western Connecticut State University.

Philip Williams, President of the University of Montevalle.

Each candidate bringing a lot to the table for the search committee to consider.

"The candidates are creative in their decision making, they bring diversity and experience, they all have senior leadership experience and I think they all have a commitment to a strategic vision and new direction for McNeese" said Moffett.

The next step for the three presidential semi-finalists named this morning, is to be interviewed by the full University of Louisiana School Board.

"That will either be Thursday or Friday, we're working on the details of that ca lender, and then at the conclusion of those the school board will make a decision to select the next president at McNeese," said Moffett.

The three finalists will interview with the University of Louisiana System Board Supervisors in Baton Rouge on Friday, April 23rd, after which a final decision will be made.
