Community college system postpones search for new leader

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Officials with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System have postponed the search for a new president due the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. A statement from the school system’s Board of Regents says they hope to post the job again in August and announce a new leader by next January. Meanwhile, current President Jay Box has agreed to remain in his position through the end of September. The extra time will ease the transition for Interim President Paul Czarapata, a vice president of the school system who oversees technology. The Kentucky Community and Technical College System is the state’s largest postsecondary institution.
