(Estherville, Iowa) The Iowa Lakes Community College Board of Trustees met at a special meeting to begin the search process for the next college president.

Iowa Lakes Community College administrators will move forward with the presidential search process and have secured the services of Dr. Larry Ebbers, Professor Emeritus from Iowa State University, to lead the search.

The search will begin by conducting an online survey about the personal and professional characteristics desired in the new president and areas of focus for the College.

The new presidential search process is on the heels of College President Valerie Newhouse’s decision to retire later this year, effective June 30, 2022. Newhouse has served as president since 2009.
