Kellogg Community College (KCC) in Battle Creek announced last week it is suspending its search for a new president for at least the next year.

In a news release, KCC board chairman Steve Claywell said that interim president Mark O’Connell has done a good job in the role since March. The school also noted that due to declining enrollment and a tight budget it does not make sense to devote resources to a national search for a new president. O’Connell, formerly KCC’s vice president of administration and finance, will remain in the interim role.

"We have heard from KCC employees and community members who are noticing, just as we are, the many positive changes occurring at the college under Mr. O'Connell's leadership," Claywell said at a KCC board meeting last week. "They also raised legitimate questions about the wisdom of spending tens of thousands of dollars on a search at a time when we're financially challenged."

Former president Dr. Dennis Bona retired in March to take a college presidency position in Minnesota.
