EKU Names Finalists for New President
Three finalists in the search for a new president at Eastern Kentucky University were unveiled Monday. They are political scientist Michael Benson of Southern Utah University, Marketing professor Alan Shao, who's dean of the business school from the College of Charleston and Lamar University administrator Greg Lasson.
The chairman of Eastern’s Board of Regents calls the finalists an “outstanding group” with “demonstrated proven leadership.” The finalists will now undergo a series of public forums at E-K-U. The Richmond-based university hopes to have a new president before summer. He’ll replace President Doug Whitlock, who’s retiring.
