Alabama State Presidency

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Robert Bentley says he hopes the Alabama State University board of trustees can pick a president with strong authority on Friday.
Bentley says he plans to attend the board meeting. The board plans to interview three finalists for the presidency and possibly pick one to lead the university.
Bentley said Tuesday the person selected needs to make sure the position comes with the authority to deal with a forensic audit he ordered of the university and with the authority to move the university forward.
The three finalists are Democratic state Sen. Quinton Ross of Montgomery, Gwendolyn Boyd of John Hopkins University, and retired Brig. Gen. Samuel Nichols Jr. from Virginia.
