NIC Board revises presidential finalists, Bell to interview Tuesday

The North Idaho College Board of Trustees has revised its list of final candidates for the president position and has invited current Interim President Priscilla Bell to meet with the campus and community on Tuesday, June 12.

The board voted on Friday morning to add Bell to the finalist list, which also includes Leah Bornstein who was on campus for interviews and meetings in late May.

Bell served as president of Highline Community College in Des Moines, Wash., from 2000 to 2006. Highline serves approximately 18,000 students annually. Prior to Highline, Bell served as president of Fulton-Montgomery Community College in Johnstown, N.Y., from 1995 to 2000.

Bell earned a doctorate in educational administration from the University of Texas in Austin. She has a master’s degree in counseling from California State University in Los Angeles and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Texas Tech University in Lubbock.

Bell will appear at two open forums on Tuesday. Employees and the public are invited to participate and provide input. The first forum will begin at 10 a.m. in the NIC Molstead Library Todd Lecture Hall. The second forum will begin at 6 p.m. in the Kidd Island Bay Room at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.
