Finalists to Be Interviewed in Search for Next Postsecondary Education Chancellor

Montgomery, AL – (AP) - Alabama education officials say they
expect to interview finalists as soon as early October for the
vacant position of chancellor of the state's two-year college
system.
Martha Simmons, spokeswoman for the two-year-system, says the
Alabama State Board of Education-Postsecondary Education was
expected to receive a list of applicants on Thursday from the
organization that has been assisting the state in the search for a
chancellor.
She says the system has received 15 applications for the
chancellor's position directly, and the nonprofit Association of
Community College Trustees probably has received more.
Former Chancellor Bradley Byrne, who took over the system at the
height of a corruption scandal, resigned in May and is a Republican
candidate for governor.
