Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake, Wash., named Leas as one of three finalists. Big Bend’s current president is retiring this year. Leas is vying for the job with Dr. Anne Temte, president of Northland Community College in Minnesota, and Denise Yochum, president of Pierce College Fort Steilacoom in Lakewood, Wash.

“Dr. Leas is one of the finalists for a presidency at another college, but with respect to the interview process and the interviewing institution, he will withhold any public discussion of this until the process is completed,” said James Douglass, Riverland director of communications. “I will try to keep the communities Riverland serves updated as public information becomes available.”
