Hiland confirms interest in UCA presidency

Posted By on Fri, Oct 7, 2016 at 2:20 PM

Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland of Conway confirmed to me today that he had sent an expression of interest to the search firm rounding up up candidates to be the next president of the University of Central Arkansas. Current President Tom Courtway has announced his intention to step down by the end of June. I mentioned Hiland's potential candidacy yesterday.

Today was the deadline for submissions of interest in the position. Hiland said he'd been contacted and responded by sending requested documents. He didn't comment further.

There's no way to know at this point about submissions of interest. Oct. 13, the search firm is to present materials it's gathered to the UCA Board's search committee. They'll pare applicants down to perhaps eight for further interviews Oct. 19-20 in Dallas.

UPDATE: The UCA Board met today and heard details on the search. The goal is to bring three to four candidates to campus for the final selection.

This, by the way, is the search committee: 

Shelia Vaught
Michael Hargis
Nancy Reese
Wale Mohammed
Jon Ross Henderson
Kevin Carter
Jeff Standridge
Kelsey Broaddrick

Bobby Reynolds, non-voting chair
Susan Lilly, secretary
Kelley Erstine, liaison
