New River Community and Technical College will have a series of public forums so faculty, administrators, staff, students and the general public can meet the two finalists for the presidency of the college.

The finalists are Dr. Debra Teachman, vice president for academic affairs at New Mexico University Alamogordo, and Dr. L. Marshall Washington, vice president of the Lancaster Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College in Pennsylvania.

Each forum will have a brief introduction of each candidate followed by a question-and-answer session. Comment forms will be given to all who attend. The completed comment forms will be collected at the end of each forum and given to the New River Board of Governors for review.

Teachman's schedule:

Jan. 22, 9-10 a.m., Greenbrier Valley Campus, Hollowell Auditorium; 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Mercer County Campus in Princeton, Room 205; 2:15-3:15 p.m., Ghent Advanced Technology Center, T302.

Jan. 23, 9-10 a.m., Nicholas County Campus, Student Commons; 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Beckley Campus, C-9.

Washington's schedule:

Jan. 25, 9-10 a.m., Nicholas County Campus, Student Commons; 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Beckley Campus, C9.
