Dear Campus Colleagues,

The Presidential search committee met, and I write to update you on our progress. The committee has selected the two finalists for the position of next president of Edward Waters College.

The search for the next President of Edward Waters College is progressing on schedule.  The search committee met most recently and selected two distinguished persons who will now come to Edward Waters College for campus listening and interview sessions.  The two finalist’s background and experience ­seem especially consistent with the qualities and qualifications established for the search and publicized in the search profile. They have gone through extensive interviews with the search committee. Additionally, background and reference checks have been conducted for these finalists. These two finalists have been selected from a large pool of qualified candidates.

The search committee is pleased to announce the following persons as the finalist.  In alphabetical order they are: A. Zachary Faison, J.D. and Said Sewell, Ph.D. Their bios are attached to this memo.

The schedule is attached for their campus visits.   We invite you to participate as your schedule allows.  I want to thank the members of the search committee for their hard work and AGB Search for their support of our search process.

Thank you for your interest and support of this important process.
