Timeline extended to find new Grambling president

The timeline to find Grambling State University's next president has been extended.

University of Louisiana System President Sandra Woodley says the original goal was to name a new president in October but the timeline will be extended into the spring.

Woodley said Thursday the search committee decided to seek a search firm with experience working with historically black colleges and universities. As a result, she says it will take a few more months to get final approval of the firm.

Thus, the new proposed timeline will include an October committee meeting, a February preferred application date, semi-finalist interviews in March, and finalist interviews and selection in April.

While the board searches for a permanent president, it appointed Cynthia Warrick as interim president to replace Frank Pogue, who retired in June.
