Members of the committee, which will be co-chaired by Board of Governors members Dr. Sherry Buchanan and Richard Walter, are:

  • Aaron Baker, Rogers, Ark., representing MSSU alumni.
  • Rob O’Brian, Joplin, representing the community.
  • Chris D. Churchwell, Joplin, representing the Missouri Southern Foundation.
  • Doug Crandall, Joplin, representing the community.
  • Judy Day, Neosho, representing the community.

During the Board of Governors meeting on Jan. 17, the committee will formally receive its charge, said Buchanan.

The committee will also hear a report on the public focus groups set for 3 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, and 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Dec. 4, in Connor Ballroom at Billingsly Student Center. The focus groups will consider questions such as what the vision should be for the university, and what skills, traits and experience Missouri Southern should look for in a new president.

The committee is expected to convene for the first time in late January.

“The Board of Governors recognizes this search is one of the most important things we can do, and we appreciate the committee’s help in moving forward,” said Buchanan.
