The Dallas County Community College District’s board of trustees nominated Dr. Joe May as the sole finalist for the position of DCCCD’s seventh chancellor, following a second round of interviews held in Dallas on Monday, Oct. 7.

The nomination must be approved by a formal vote of the trustees, following a 21-day waiting period.

May, with the approval of his nomination, will fill the position when Dr. Wright Lassiter Jr. retires on Dec. 31, 2013, after 27 years with the district — serving two decades as president of El Centro College and seven years as the district’s chancellor.

May currently serves as president of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System. He previously served as system president for the Colorado Community College System and president of Pueblo Community College prior to that position.

LCTCS provides strategic management and support for Louisiana’s 13 community and technical colleges, enrolling more than 101,000 students in associate degree, technical diploma and industry-based certificate programs.
