The Hill College Board of Regents accepted applications for the position of President of the College through April 7, 2014. A community-wide screening committee reviewed the large pool of qualified candidates, references were checked and additional information was gathered by consultant Dr. John Anthony. After careful consideration, the committee recommended six finalists who were accepted by the Board of Regents Tuesday, May 20. The finalists listed below will each undergo extensive campus visits and interviews, including open community forums between June 2 and June 13, with the hope that one of them will be selected by the Board as the 10th president of Hill College:
