VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Community and Technical College System board of regents has unanimously selected Jay K. Box as the system’s next president.

Board Chairman P.G. Peeples Sr. said the board voted in special session Wednesday in favor of Box to succeed the retiring Michael B. McCall on Jan. 16.

Box has been chancellor of the system since 2009 and has more than 30 years of experience in community college leadership.

Box appeared at a forum Tuesday for faculty, staff and students in Versailles. A news release from KCTCS said he spoke about his vision for the system and answered questions.

The release said a survey that participants completed after the forum showed 85 percent said Box met or exceeded their expectations.
