West Liberty Committee Sets Timeline for Selecting President


A West Liberty University search committee has set a timeline for the process of naming the school’s next president.

West Liberty said in a statement Tuesday that the 22-member committee selected university Board of Governors member Leslie DeFelice to lead the search committee.

The committee set a June 12 deadline to receive applications and has scheduled a June 19 meeting to narrow the pool to about eight to 10 candidates. Preliminary interviews would be held in early July. Finalists would be selected in September with the goal of naming the new president in early October.

Former President Robin Capehart resigned March 11 following an ethics complaint and a vote of no confidence by the faculty. John McCullough is serving as interim president.
