““The search committee did an excellent job and I look forward to meeting each of the candidates in Roswell later this month,” said ENMU System Chancellor Dr. Jeff Elwell.

“I am proud of the contribution each member has made thus far as we work, collaboratively, in the rigorous search to find the best candidates for president of ENMU-Roswell,” said Mireya Trujillo, chair of the search committee and secretary of the ENMU-Roswell Branch Community College Board.

Following the July 17-19 campus visits and interviews with faculty, students, administrators and community members, Elwell will select a new president. The expected hire date is Aug. 15.

ENMU President Emeritus Dr. Steven Gamble has been serving as interim president of the Roswell campus since March 26. That followed a couple of weeks after a resignation announcement by Dr. John Madden, who took immediate leave from the campus. He had been in the post about nine years and in higher education for 35 years.
