They have reposted the announcement for the position here at Ferrum
College. It was changed somewhat. Here is the updated job title and link.
There is not a deadline posted right now, they want to leave it open for
those who want to finish out the academic year at their current
institutions. I am hopeful that we might be so fortunate as to get a member
of NCLCA!!
