ROCK HILL, S.C. — The search for Winthrop University’s 10th president has been narrowed down to 12 candidates, according to Kathy Hudson Bigham ’73, presidential search committee chairwoman and vice president of Winthrop’s Board of Trustees.

The presidential search committee members will meet the first round of candidates in person from Sunday-Tuesday in Charlotte. The 10-member search committee, which is composed of one professor, one student and eight board members, chose the candidates from a large applicant pool.

Greenwood-Asher, the search consultant chosen for helping select the president, made at least 600 calls to people who were interested in or recommended for the job or know those interested in applying.

After the meetings, three finalists will be recommended to the Board of Trustees. The new president will take over this summer.
