Provost, 24 others, apply for NWACC presidency

A NorthWest Arkansas Community College administrator has applied for the college’s president position.

Steven Gates, senior vice president for Learning and Provost at the college, and Debra Teachman turned in applications Wednesday. Teachman is the vice president for Academic Affairs at New Mexico State University, according to a college news release.

The college announced on Tuesday that 23 people from across the county had applied for the job. The preferred deadline was Monday, but applications are still being taken.

Becky Paneitz announced her retirement in April. She will end her 10-year term as president in June 2013. A search committee will review resumes Oct. 4 and 5.


The original headline on this story misstated how many people have applied for the president position. The error has been corrected.

Steve Gates appears not to be qualified.
