Board seeks new president

The George Fox Board of Trustees has begun the process of seeking a new president. A search committee representing trustees, faculty, staff, and students is reviewing candidates. Kent Thornburg (’67) serves as chair. After the search committee does its work, the board will make the final decision.

"I appreciate your prayer for this committee and our candidates."
