The three candidates may be opposed by any petition candidate who gathers 500 signatures by Feb. 9. Voting will occur from March 14 to April 11, 2012.
Kimball, Wilson and Fick were chosen from among over 300 names suggested by alumni from June to September, according to Pete Frederick '65, chair of the Nominating and Alumni Trustee Search Committee. They will each run for one of the three open positions on the Board, a process that began with the 2010 elections that replaced the previous method of choosing three nominees per vacancy.
If elected, Fick would become the youngest trustee on the Board by over 10 years.
