Kearney - Clarendon, Texas +'k. 806-874-2431 Get your clothes looking nice for the holidays, Greenbelt Cleaners can help, C00om600foin Editorial A Thank You, A Suggestion and A Fact Dr. Jerry Stockton, President of Clarendon College, is retiring. Virtually all of the com- munity will want to say "Thank youI" to Dr. Stockton for his very real contribution to the com- munity. Jerry Stockton became in- volved in the community almost as soon as he arrived. He served as a board member on the Chamber of Commerce. He helped in the effort to start a theme park. He was sym- pathetic, supportive or active in almost every community project. Yet Dr. Stockton's greatest service to the community was strengthening Clarendon College. When Dr. Stockton arrived, morale at the college was at an all- time low. He began the process of developing a more collegial at- mosphere. He started the institu- tion looking to the future. Dr. Stockton and Royce Bodiford began the first steps toward securing a permanent en- dowment for the college, to put it on a sound and secure footing for the future. That job is not com- pleted (and perhaps can never be completed), but there has been a very large amount of progress in a relatively short period. When Stockton arrived, Clarendon College did not even have a student center, which probably made it unique among Texas colleges, but in a negative MORROW DRILLING & WELL SERVICE SALES & SERVICE 12 YEARS EXPERIENCE WATER WELL DRILLING WINDMILLS COMPLETE TURNKEY SYSTEMS GRUNDFOS STAINLESS STEEL PUMPS SOLAR ENERGY PUMPS 874-2704 Motor Company 1992 Pontiac Gr.

But the college also built two other buildings, one with badly needed classroom space and one to provide additional dorm space. Every area resident should shake Dr. Stockton's hand and say "Thanks". Dr. Stockton has reportedly recommended to the board that they immediately begin a search procedure for a new president. That, too, is a superb suggestion. In December of 1992, the Texas Association of School Boards outlined a search proce- dure to assist Clarendon Inde- pendent School District in finding a new superintendent. Their tech- nique is well proven and quite suc- cessful. The college board would do well to adopt a similar ap- proach. That procedure begins with the hiring of an expert to conduct the advertising and search process. Perhaps the Texas Junior College Teachers Association or the As- sociation of Junior Colleges has a similar service. If not, perhaps Tom Jarboe would conduct the search process of Clarendon Junior College as he did for the public school. The second step in the process begins when the consult- ant holds hearings. The consultant will schedule meetings with area residents, with community or- ganizations, with students, and with the board. He will consult with the faculty, the group that has the most "on the spot" experience with the day-to-day operation of the college, and the group with the best educational credentials. After he has listened to everyone's opinion as to what kind of can- dldate is needed, the consultant will study all the input that he has received. This requires wisdom and experience, but is probably the key ingredient in making the process work. The consultant then will analyze what characteristics the constituency has outlined. He or will develop a profile that describes the kind of person that is needed for the job. While the first three steps , are proceeding, the consultant will be advertising, soliciting as many applications as possible. The col- lege will receive an abundance of applications to choose from. The consultant would then do the initial screening, selecting those applications that most close- ly match the profile of the ideal candidate. He will then submit the top dozen or so applications to the 11 c,, I"''"" ,I ,(ISNS 947040)  pub- w for: Sl0 per year m Donley Comity and per y_ O-Of-comty, by Rrt C.  dba The parendn Pi'ess 105"S.

The ultimate selec- tion, of course, is up to the board. This process works. It can reasonably be expected to produce the best possible candidate for the office. Support for this process would be as universal as anything could ever be. Clarendon College is very important to Donley County. It is one of the major pillars upon which the local economy rests. Each year the students and faculty of the college bring literally hundreds of thousands of dollars from out-of-county into the com- munity. Without that influx, every merchant would be poorer and taxpayers would have to dig deeper to pay for city and county govern- ment. Without the college, many area young people would not be able to pursue their education beyond High School. Clarendon College is so vital that every resident and every local organization should work at every opportunity to build as dynamic and secure a future for the college as possible.
