named district president of Navarro College in Texas

Barbara Kavalier named president of Navarro College

After a nationwide search that started last summer, the Navarro College Board of Trustees named a new president for the college Thursday.

Trustees unanimously approved the selection of Dr. Barbara Kavalier, president of San Jose City College in California, as its new district president.

Kavalier will replace Dr. Richard Sanchez, who will wrap up a 15-year run as Navarro College’s leader in August.

Kavalier was one of three finalists that were interviewed by trustees in a series of meetings held in Corsicana in February, and was the unanimous pick of the board Thursday.

“She’s a very good fit for Navarro College,” said Trustee Buster Atkeisson. “All of the report we gathered were excellent.”

Trustee Faith Holt echoed the board’s excitement on the selection.

“Dr. Kavalier stood out above everybody,” she said.

Dr. James Price headed up the search committee. He was part of a team of trustees that visited Kavalier’s campus in California.

“It’s obvious the best candidate comes forward,” he said. “She’s very energetic ... we’re excited about the leadership she’ll provide for the college.”

“We’re very impressed with her,” said Trustee Todd McGraw on the board’s choice. “We’re excited to have her.”

Trustee Dick Aldama was also on the search committee, and also felt Kavalier was a good pick.

“In the interview process she was high above everyone else,” Aldama said. “I believe the entire search committee felt she was above the others.”

“Dr. Kavalier is a wonderful person,” said trustee Phil Judson. “She’s excited about coming to Texas, and that’s a big part of it.”
