NWCC to use Executive Search Firm in quest for New President

The Board of Governors of Northwest Community College have turned to Vancouver based Executive Search Firm Boyden, as part of their search to find the next President of the Community College with campus locations across the region.

In a press release from Thursday, NWCC and Boyden outlined the scope of their search for a replacement for Dr. Denise Henning who recently departed from the main campus at Terrace, taking up similar duties at a community college in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
