CMC president search down to two
After considering input from college faculty, staff and students, and community opinion gleaned from an online survey, the Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees narrowed its list of five finalists for the position of college-wide president to two: Dr. Joe Forrester and Dr. Stanley Jensen.
Forrester worked for the college from 1989 to 1999 as Timberline Campus dean in Leadville. He is currently president of the Community College of Beaver County in Monaca, Pa.
For 19 years, Jensen has been president of a company that provides training in leadership development, team building, process improvement training and strategic planning to businesses, colleges and nonprofit organizations.
