KSAL StaffDecember 2, 2014

A former president of Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina is finalist for a similar job at one of the campuses of West Virginia University.

West Virginia University at Parkersburg’s board has scheduled interviews with five finalists for the president’s job. he candidates will visit the campus this week and next week. They are Paul Schreffler of Mill Creek; Harold Nolte of Brenham, Texas; Alan Roberts of Fort Pierce, Florida; James Conneely of Richmond, Kentucky.; and Fletcher Lamkin of Lane Osage Beach, Missouri.

Lamkin was president of Kansas Wesleyan University from 2010 through 2012. His tenure was marked by controversy as many employees resigned or were fired.

The university’s Board of Governors is expected to name a new president at its Dec. 10 meeting.

The board named Rhonda Tracy as interim president in May after Marie Foster Gauge announced she was stepping down to become a regional president for Florida State College in Jacksonville.
