The New Year came without an announcement of a new president for Denmark Technical College.
The DTC Area Commission originally hoped to name a new president by the end of December, but "the holidays put the process behind a bit," said Kelly Steinhilper, VP of Communications for the S.C. Technical College System, which oversees the state's 16 technical colleges.
She said the commission is "negotiating" the details for the new president, though it's not clear who they are negotiating with. They previously interviewed three finalists for the position Dec. 16.
The finalists were Benjamin I. Duncan, deputy director for administration and strategic planning at the South Carolina Department of Insurance; Thomas W. Mayer, director and chief executive officer of John De La Howe School; and Leonard A. McIntyre, interim dean for the College of Education, Humanities and Social Sciences at South Carolina State University.
An announcement naming the new president should be made within the next couple of weeks, said Steinhilper.
The search for a new president comes after Dr. Joann Boyd-Scotland, who has served as interim president since the previous president resigned in 2011, expressed her desire to retire.
DTC's main campus is in Denmark, though there are satellite locations in Barnwell and Allendale.
