Kentucky State University selects interim president
The Kentucky State University Board of Regents has named the school’s interim president.
Board members announced Tuesday that administrator Aaron Thompson will become interim president until a permanent president is chosen. The announcement came a week after Raymond Burse announced he was stepping down after two years of serving as the university’s president.
Thompson’s term will begin immediately. He told the Lexington Herald-Leader that as interim president, he will examine the current budget, enrollment management system and other infrastructure.
He previously worked as executive vice president of the Council on Postsecondary Education as a specialist in educational attainment and academic success.
