Mountain State to name interim president in April

BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) -- Mountain State University's Board of Trustees plans to name an interim president in April and begin a search later this year for a permanent leader.

Jerry Ice has been serving as acting president since the board fired former President Charles Polk in January in the wake of accreditation issues.

The Register-Herald reports that Ice sent a mass email last week to faculty, staff and students concerning the president's position.

Ice's email says an interim president will be named in April and take office at that time. A national search firm will help identify presidential candidates later this year. A new president is expected to be named in mid to late 2013.
