Community college reopens search for president after fire
MOORHEAD, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi community college is resuming its search for president.
Trustees of Mississippi Delta Community College announced last week that they had reopened the search, with applications due Jan. 31.
President Larry Nabors had planned to retire this summer but decided to stay an extra year after a college administration building in Moorhead was damaged in December in an apparent arson related to a burglary.
The Greenwood Commonwealth reports the college opened bids last month for renovation and partial reconstruction of the building, estimated to cost more than $1 million.
The south side of the building will be demolished and rebuilt, and the rest of the interior will receive a makeover.
Nabors has been president at 2,400-student Mississippi Delta Community College since 2013.
