PHCC Inviting Public Questions for College Presidential Candidates

Earlier this year, the president of Patrick Henry Community College, Dr. Angeline Godwin, announced her retirement. At that time, the search for a replacement began. Those involved in the screening and interviewing process have been working diligently to select potential candidates for the college’s future president. Within the next few weeks, the selection committee will narrow down the pool of candidates to the top four.

During the first two weeks of May, everyone in the community will be invited to meet each of the four candidates through open forum meetings. To provide each candidate an opportunity to answer community members’ questions, four separate forums will be held over the weeks of May 3 and May 10 via Zoom. During each forum, one of the four candidates will answer questions submitted in advance by the community.

To submit a question for the candidates, community members should email before 5PM on Friday, April 23. Due to the nature of the events, comments and questions from the public will not be accepted during the meeting. All questions will be pre-screened for appropriateness and to avoid duplication. Please note, PHCC cannot ensure that every submitted question will be used as time may be limited.

PHCC employees and students should not submit their questions to this email as employees and students will have separate opportunities to meet the candidates. Current employees and students should refer to the notices sent to their PHCC emails to learn how to submit questions for the employee or student-specific forums.

The college will provide a link to the meetings within the next few weeks via a public announcement and on its social media channels.
