GEORGETOWN, KY – The twelve-member search committee made up of representatives from the Georgetown College board of trustees, faculty, staff, alumni, parents council, and student body is pleased to have selected three candidates from which a possible successor to retiring president William H. Crouch, Jr. may be named.

The finalists announced Tuesday by William J. Houston, search committee chair, are:

Cheryl Kimberling, president, Multicultural Alliance, Fort Worth, Texas;

Jim Newberry, vice-president and general counsel, Georgetown College, Georgetown, KY; and,

Jason Rogers, vice president for administration and university counsel, Belmont University, Nashville, TN.

The search committee has unanimously selected these candidates who will meet on campus in the next week with trustees, faculty, staff, alumni, students, and community members. A visit schedule will be announced soon.

Following feedback from these groups, a search committee recommendation will be made to the board of trustees which will then potentially select the 24th president of Georgetown College.

With roots dating to 1787, Georgetown College is a Christian liberal arts college with an ongoing affiliation with the Kentucky Baptist Convention.
