Ky. Hires New Chief for Higher Ed Panel

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has a new higher education chief.
The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education ended its
extended search Tuesday for a new president, picking Robert L. King
- a former New York education official. The 61-year-old King was
chancellor of the State University of New York and is currently
president and CEO of the Arizona Community Foundation.
King has agreed to terms of a three year contract. He replaces
former Council on Postsecondary President Tom Layzell, who retired
in September 2007.
The job pays $360,000 per year, $40,000 for housing and a state
vehicle.
