The Board of Regents for Higher Education is expected to fill three community college presidencies at a special meeting Friday, including the Quinebaug Valley Community College post sought by Senate President Donald E. Williams Jr.

Williams, a Democrat from the northeastern Connecticut community of Brooklyn, near the Quinebaug campus, was identified two weeks ago as one of three finalists. If chosen, Williams could not legally take the job until his legislative term expires in January.

The Regents’ search committee is scheduled make its recommendations for the next presidents of Quinebaug, Three Rivers Community College and Asnuntuck Community College. A vote is expected on all three recommendations.
