Committee searching for new Lamar Institute of Technology president – Beaumont Enterprise

The Texas State University System is taking the next step in finding a new president for Lamar Institute of Technology.
LIT President Lonnie Howard in February  announced that he would step down from the position in July.
Howard, who has served as president since 2016, did not give a reason as to why he was stepping down. 
TSUS formed a 10-person advisory search committee, composed of LIT and Beaumont community members, to begin the process of finding a new president.

The candidates will then have an opportunity to interview with TSUS Chancellor Brian McCall, after which a sole finalist will be named and recommended for confirmation by the TSUS Board of Regents.
A sole finalist could be confirmed as early as July.
