JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) - The field of candidates to succeed
East Tennessee State University President Paul E. Stanton Jr. has
been narrowed to three.
The choice will be made from among Robert Frank, provost and
senior vice president for academic affairs at Kent State University
in Ohio; Brian Noland, chancellor of the West Virginia Higher
Education Policy Commission; and Sandra Patterson-Randles,
chancellor of Indiana University Southeast.
The finalists were on the Johnson City campus last week, meeting
with various groups, according to the Johnson City Press.
Stanton is retiring in January. His successor is expected to be
chosen by mid-November. A cardiovascular surgeon by training,
Stanton came to ETSU in 1985 and became president in 1997.
