Lakeshore Technical College Announces Finalists in Presidential Search




The Lakeshore Technical College District Board has announced two finalists in its presidential search, selected from dozens of highly-qualified college administrators from across the nation.

LTC Board Chair and chair of the LTC Presidential Search Committee, Dr. Sharon Chappy, said she was pleased with the quality of the candidates who applied, and that narrowing the list down to two was no easy task.

“We received a tremendous amount of interest for this position, and the quality of these applicants certainly speaks volumes about LTC’s reputation for excellence,” Chappy said. “We are very fortunate to have two outstanding candidates who are eager to build on that reputation and lead LTC in its mission to enrich lives and strengthen the economy by preparing a workforce.”

The finalists are Dr. Keith Cornille, Executive Vice President/Chief Student Services Officer at Madison Area Technical College, Madison, Wisconsin; and Dr. Paul Carlsen, Chief Content Officer at Louisiana Community and Technical College System, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The Presidential Search Committee began its work in November, following the announcement by LTC President Dr. Michael Lanser that he would retire on June 30. More than 45 applications were received, with eight being called in for interviews prior to the selection of the two finalists. Members of the committee included college staff, faculty, students and community members. The committee worked with national executive search firm the Pauly Group.

“I want to commend the members of the search committee for the difficult task of narrowing down the list to these two candidates, and taking on a responsibility that is so critical to the future of Lakeshore Technical College,” said Chappy. “We look forward to working with LTC faculty, staff, and members of the community as we move forward in this process.”

The two finalists will be on campus the weeks of March 6th and 13th for interviews and forums with college students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. Input from the forums will be compiled and provided to the District Board as they choose the college’s next president.

Dates and times for the public forums, as well as complete profiles of each of the finalists, will be posted on the college’s website,
