Presidential Search Update

Posted February 4, 2019

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to thank you for your prayers and support over the last several months as the Presidential Search and Hiring Process has unfolded. 

In November the Hiring Committee selected by Mount Carmel’s Board of Directors offered the position of President to a candidate selected from a short list of applicants. After careful and prayerful consideration, that candidate decided to decline the position.

That means that we currently do not have a candidate for the position of President. The Board of Directors has decided to identify an interim president for the 2019-2020 year. That selection process is now underway. We will update our supporters as soon as we can.

Over the next several months, in addition to selecting an interim president, the Board of Directors will undertake a process of focused consultation with the Mount Carmel community to discern a clear direction for the school.

A more complete description of the current status of these issues can be found in the attached letter from Board Chair Gary Short.
