PABLO – With an interim president in place and a new academic year just begun three weeks ago, Salish Kootenai College will spend the next six to nine months selecting a new leader for its campus, one of the most successful tribal colleges in the nation.
Luana K. Ross, who replaced longtime Salish Kootenai College president Joe McDonald in 2010, resigned Friday, citing “irreconcilable visions between myself and some members of the governing board.”
PABLO — After hearing for more than two hours what a great guy he is, Salish Kootenai College President Joe McDonald took the microphone, chuckled a bit, and told several hundred people he had no choice now but to follow through on his retirement plans.
PABLO — Joe McDonald built Salish Kootenai College from a small satellite institution offering a few junior college credits to a handful of students in borrowed high school classrooms on the Flathead Indian Reservation into what is one of the most successful tribal colleges in America.
