Two candidates for the presidency of Louisburg College will visit the campus for interviews next week, the News & Observer's Jane Stancill reports.
The board there will vote on a new leader Nov. 21.
The candidates are Mark David La Branche, senior vice president of external affairs at Huntingdon College in Alabama, and Judy Blankenship Cheatham, an English professor at Greensboro College who also headed graduate programs there.
La Branche will tour Louisburg on Monday and Tuesday, while Cheatham will visit on Thursday and Friday. Both will interview with faculty and staff.
Louisburg's next president will have a tough task ahead.
Late last year, the financially troubled school was warned that it could lose accreditation. That would bring almost the almost certain demise of Louisburg, the only private junior college in North Carolina.
The last president, J. Michael Clyburn, resigned after less than a year. He had cut jobs at the heavily indebted college, which revived a long-dormant football program in 2005 to attract more students.
