FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State University has a new interim president.

Dr. Ronald A. Johnson will begin his appointment on July 1. He’s the former president of Clark Atlanta University.

The former president resigned last year. The school has been dealing with serious financial problems.

Last year, university leaders told state lawmakers that it needed emergency funding to stay open.
