BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Community and Technical College System could have a new president as early as next week.
LCTCS Board of Supervisors Chairman Michael Murphy of Bogalusa says the plan is to make a selection Feb. 12 from the four candidates interviewed by the full board Friday.
Murphy said he'd like the new president to be seated by or before Feb. 26 when current system President Joe May departs to take a job in Texas.
The Town Talk reports May, president for the past seven years, is leaving to take a similar job in Dallas, near where several members of family reside.
May's salary is about $271,000 a year. His planned departure date is Feb. 26 when his current contract expires.
