ALPINE – A sole finalist has been named for the Sul Ross State University President position.
According to a press release received by NewsWest 9, William L. Kibler has been named the sole finalist.
Kibler was selected from a field of nearly 40 candidates who applied or were nominated for the position.
According to the press release, Kibler is expected to assume the presidency prior to the fall semester. However, by law, a candidate for president of a public college or university must remain the sole finalist for 21 days before a governing board can confirm the appointment.
Kibler earned his bachelor’s degree in economics and a master’s degree in counselor education from the University of Florida. Kibler later attended Texas A&M University where he earned a Ph.D. in educational administration.
