Board Chairman Michael McCuskey tells The Pantagraph that trustees are likely to hold a special meeting on Dec. 15 to launch their search for Bowman's successor.
McCuskey says they'll hire a search firm and the process should be in full swing by late January or early February.
Trustee Betty Kinser says finding Bowman's replacement is "going to take a lot of work and conscientious searching."
