LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An administrator with the University of Arkansas System’s Cossatot Community College is a search committee’s top choice to lead the state’s Department of Higher Education.

The committee on Tuesday recommended the hiring of Maria Markham, who now serves as vice chancellor for academic services at Cossatot Community College. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2amsba5 ) that the recommendation now goes to the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board and is subject to confirmation from Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

If approved, Markham would succeed former director Brett Powell, who stepped down earlier this year to take a job at Henderson State University.
