MOSES LAKE — Four women and one man will be interviewed for the job of Big Bend Community College president, beginning next week. College officials announced the five finalists Monday.

The candidates are: Suzanne Ames, currently an administrator at Lake Washington Institute of Technology; William Belden, administrator at Clark College, Vancouver; Maria del Rosario Flores, administrator at Wenatchee Valley College; Sara Thompson Tweedy, administrator at State University of New York, Westchester, in Valhalla, New York; and Teresa Rich, administrator at Yakima Valley College, Yakima.

The new president will replace Terry Leas, who announced in July 2019 that he would retire at the end of the 2019-20 academic year.

Each candidate will visit BBCC for a day-long interview, which will include meetings with BBCC faculty and staff, a tour of Moses Lake and an interview with BBCC trustees. The candidates will have dinner with the trustees, members of the BBCC Foundation board and Associated Student Body officers.

Trustees will hold a special meeting Feb. 6 to reduce the list, then conduct site visits and interviews with each finalist. Trustees plan to announce the choice for the new president by March 11.
