WVU Board Narrows List for Interim President


West Virginia University board members hope to select the school’s interim president early next month.
     The university’s Board of Governors spent more than four hours in closed executive session Thursday. Later, board chairman James Dailey said the list of potential candidates was narrowed but he didn’t say how many remain.
     The board meets again Dec. 3. Dailey said he hopes the board can take the narrowed list and wrap up the selection process.
     The board is looking for a temporary replacement for Jim Clements, who accepted the presidency of Clemson University earlier this month.
