A committee that will recruit and recommend the 24th president of Georgetown College has been selected and will meet soon to determine the next steps in the search.

It will report to the College’s trustees no later than January the process to be followed for identifying and selecting a replacement for William H. Crouch, Jr., who is retiring June 30, 2013.

The presidential search committee is being led by William J. Houston, former chair of the College’s board of trustees who now serves as board vice-chair. Other members of the committee representing a cross-section of alumni, faculty, students and staff are Holly Bartlett, Parents’ Advisory Council; Rev. Greg Barr ’86, Trustee; Dr. Yoli Carter, Dean of Education; Brian Evans, Vice President for Diversity and Athletic Director; Randy Fox ‘60, Trustee; Rev. Richard Gaines, Trustee; Melanie Ladd ’94, Alumni Advisory Board; Frank Penn ‘68, Trustee; Molly Shoulta, class of 2013, former Student Government Association President; Dr. Harold Tallant, Chair, Faculty Committee; and J. Guthrie True ’82, Trustee, and a former board chair.

In its charge to the presidential search committee, the board, by unanimous vote, emphasized by resolution the desire of the trustees to find a president who has a strong commitment to the Christian faith and academic freedom.

The resolution stated:  "Since its charter in 1829, Georgetown College has been focused on providing an excellent education built upon a solid foundation of Christian principles.  As a board of trustees, we are committed to continuing that tradition.  We direct the presidential search team to find a person of strong Christian faith; an effective leader who will maintain Georgetown's commitment to faith and academic integrity and freedom."
