Western Nebraska Community College President Todd Holcomb is one of four candidates being interviewed to head Hawkeye Commmunity College in Waterloo, Iowa.

According to a report from The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, Holcomb is the last of four finalists to be interviewed for the position. He is being interviewed for the position Thursday (today).

Hawkeye Community College’s current president, Linda Allen, has announced she plans to retire June 30, the community college says on its website. Presidential candidates will participate in a series of open forums for faculty, staff, students and community members as part of the college’s presidential search.

Holcomb has been with Western Nebraska Community College since 2009,

Holcomb started with WNCC in September 2009, serving as the vice president of student services. Prior to coming to WNCC, he was the associate vice president for student affairs at Iowa State University. His previous experience also includes stints at Texas Tech University, the University of Georgia and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

Holcomb was named president in December 2010, filling the post after serving as interim president after former president Eileen Ely left the college.

In March 2018, Holcomb was also one of three finalists for a president position at Seminole State College in Sanford College in Florida. At the time, he said he was not actively looking to leave WNCC, but was considering the position to be near an aging family.
