BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana’s Board of Regents has named finalists from West Virginia, Rhode Island and Texas for the state’s next higher education commissioner.

The list was announced Thursday after two days of closed-door search committee meetings with candidates. The board plans to choose among them Oct. 9.

The finalists are:

-Robin Capehart, of West Virginia, president of West Liberty University.

-Ray DiPasquale, of Rhode Island, president of the Community College of Rhode Island.

-Joseph Rallo, of Texas, vice chancellor of academic affairs at the Texas Tech University System.

There may be a fourth finalist. Regents Chairman Clinton “Bubba” Rasberry said the search committee was interested in another candidate who wants more time before deciding whether to be named as a contender.

The Board of Regents didn’t say how many people were interviewed.
