Board of Regents Continues Presidential Search

The Amarillo College Board of Regents is moving forward with the process of identifying the next president of Amarillo College. 

While neither of the finalists from the initial Spring 2024 search were ultimately offered the position, Regents remain committed to continuing the work of finding the right president to lead the College forward.

While the presidential search continues, Denese Skinner, vice president of student affairs, will continue to serve as interim president.
