Two HCC Presidential Candidates Meet Community

The community wants to know how Hopkinsville Community College Presidential candidates will embrace the culture and mission currently undertaken in the region. Over the past two days, the four candidates have toured the local campus and the Fort Campbell campus as well as met with college stakeholders. Doctors Jay Allen and Joyce Ester spoke with area community members during hour long forums Tuesday afternoon.

Allen, who has spent his career so far in Mississippi, says he will look for ways to increase involvement all around at the college.


Ester, who resigned as President of Kennedy-King College following being chosen as a finalist for a different job, says HCC was appealing to her because it serves the three areas that are her passions.

Among those in the audience asking questions of the candidates were Christian County School Board Member Sara Shepherd, Christian County Chamber President Carter Hendricks, League of Women Voter member Bonnie Lynch, Cadiz Rotary members Ben Cundiff and Dr Scott Sutherland, Cornerstone President David Smith and Kentucky New Era Publisher Taylor Hayes. Thursday, community members will have the opportunity to meet with Doctors Chris Ezell and Juston Pate.
