Columbia Gorge Community College will hold a series of open forums next week to gather input from community members, faculty, students, and staff on the qualities they would like to see in the school’s next president. CGCC Board of Education chair Stu Watson says the intent is to get as many ideas as possible. Dr. Preston Pulliams of Gold Hill Associates, which has been brought on to lead the search for a new president, will facilitate the forums. The forums will take place next Wednesday, October 11 at The Dalles campus and Thursday, October 12 at the Hood River campus. Campus forums will take place at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. both days, and community forums at 5:30 p.m. The campus forums in The Dalles will be at Lecture Hall 2, Building 1, and the community forum at the Class Act Café in Building 1.
