Kansas Wesleyan University leaders have chosen three finalists to consider as the next president of the Salina school.
The finalists announced Monday are Brian McGee, chief of staff and senior policy adviser at the College of Charleston in Charleston, S.C.; Roger Drake, vice president of finance at Lindsey Wilson College in Kentucky; and Matthew Thompson, vice president for advancement at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Fla.
The Salina Journal reports the presidential search committee chose the finalists from eight candidates. The men will visit the Salina campus in the next two weeks to meet with faculty, staff and students.
The next president will replace Fletcher Lamkin, who resigned last June after a 2 1/2-year tenure marked by controversy as many employees resigned or were fired.
