Board selects new head of NSCC


How did Gentile come to hear about the opening at North Shore Community College? Someone she knew at Atlantic Cape recommended her to the presidential search consultant, Liz Rocklin.

“The community college sector is a fairly small community,” Gentile said. “Word gets around.”

Rocklin works as a senior consultant with R.H. Perry and Associates, which was hired by NSCC to help run the search and make sure the candidates, 72 in all, met the qualifications. The field was narrowed to 13 for interviews, with five finalists selected by a search committee of 16 people. The five finalists went on to two-day interviews with college constituents over the course of more than two weeks last month.
