Kentucky Council on Post-Secondary Education’s presidential search narrows

The Kentucky Council on Post-Secondary Education expects to announce finalists as it winds down its search for a new president.

A statement from the council says its presidential search committee will meet in closed session Tuesday at its Frankfort office to discuss personnel, and afterward expects to announce finalists for the position in open session.

The council coordinates Kentucky’s public college and universities. It launched a national search in July for a new leader after its president, Bob King, announced plans to retire.

King has served as president of the Kentucky Council on Post-Secondary Education since 2009.

Officials have said they hope to have a new person in place before the end of the year.
