INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann says she's been approached about becoming president of an Indiana community college, and Gov. Mike Pence's spokesman says Pence has encouraged her to seek the job.

The (Munster) Times reports (http://bit.ly/1U1bq0G ) Ellspermann said Monday unnamed people have approached her about becoming president of Ivy Tech Community College next year.

She stressed that university trustees will make the final decision, but said she informed Pence of the opportunity.

Spokesman Matt Lloyd says Pence believes Ellspermann is an "ideal candidate" to lead the college and he "strongly encouraged" her to pursue the position.

A search committee is seeking a replacement for retiring President Thomas Snyder. A decision is expected in July.

Ellspermann's departure would give Pence the chance to choose a new running mate as he seeks re-election.
