Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, February 11, 2020
Saint Mary’s Interim President Nancy Nekvasil and other campus dignitaries will announce and introduce the incoming College president at a “special event” for students, faculty and staff Wednesday, according to a media alert. Nekvasil will be joined by Gretchen Flicker, chair of the board of trustees and an alumna from the College’s class of 1993, and Sr. Veronique Wiedower, CSC president of the Sisters of the Holy Cross and an alumna from the College’s class of 1970, in announcing the president-elect.
The new president was chosen after a ten-month nationwide search and will be the 14th individual to fill the position since the College was originally founded in 1844. He or she will take office this summer.
The search was conducted with assistance from WittKieffer, a national search firm specializing in “presidential and executive searches in higher education,” according to the presidential search webpage. The search committee included trustees, faculty, administrators, students, alumnae and parents.
The event will take place on Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the atrium of Spes Unica Hall.
