CALAIS — The search for a new president of Washington County Community College in eastern Maine has concluded without finding a nominee.

The Maine Community College System’s trustees plan to reopen the search next January.

In the meantime, the interim president of the college, William Cassidy, will remain in that position through the coming academic year.

Maine Community College System President John Fitzsimmons says Cassidy will stay on through next June. Cassidy served as president of the Calais college from 2003 to 2009 and returned to the college on an interim basis this July 1, when President Joyce Hedlund retired.

Cassidy’s career in education has spanned three decades at both the secondary and post-secondary levels.
