Forsyth Technical Community College Announces Four Finalists in Presidential Search
Forsyth Technical Community College has selected four finalists in the search for the college’s next president. The search began earlier this year, when Dr. Gary M.

Following Dr. Green’s announcement, Alan Proctor, then chair of the Forsyth Tech Board of Trustees appointed Ed Welch, former Forsyth Tech Board of Trustees chair, and Ann Bennett Phillips current chair for the Forsyth Tech Board of Trustees to lead the Presidential Search Advisory Committee. The search committee is comprised of board members, community leaders, faculty and staff who secured the executive search firm of Greenwood/Asher & Associates to lead the nationwide search for candidates.
The finalists and their current positions are:
- Marcia Conston, vice president for Enrollment and Student Services, Central Piedmont Community College. Conston holds a doctorate in philosophy in higher education administration from the University of Southern Mississippi; her master of science in economics and her bachelor of science in psychology from Jackson State University.
- John Enamait, president, Stanly Community College. Enamait holds a doctorate of philosophy from Indiana State University; his master of business administration with a concentration in international business and his bachelor of science in business administration from Gardner-Webb University.
- Jeanne Jacobs, president, Miami Dade College’s Homestead Campus. Jacobs holds a doctorate in philosophy in administration of higher education from the University of Alabama, her master of education in adult education from Alabama A&M University and her bachelor of arts in English from Fisk University.
- Janet Spriggs, chief operating officer, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. Spriggs holds a doctorate in higher education administration from Northeastern University; her master of science in computing technology in education from Nova Southeastern University; and her bachelor of science in computer information systems, from Roger Williams University.
“We are confident in the search committee’s thorough process to provide Forsyth Tech a strong list of qualified candidates,” said Welch. “Throughout the process, our goal was to seek the candidate who would provide outstanding leadership and vision to build on the great foundation set by Dr. Green and further advance the college and our community.”
From September 24 through 27, the finalists will visit the college to meet with board members, foundation board of directors, faculty, staff and students. Following these sessions, the search committee will conduct formal interviews with each of the candidates.
The search committee will present its recommendation to the Forsyth Tech Board of Trustees, then the Board will select and submit the finalist to the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges for approval. A final announcement is expected late October or November.
Once the finalist has been selected, Forsyth Tech will have community forums to meet the new president.
