SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Neumont University, a Salt Lake City college specializing in computer science, has named a former Brigham Young University track star as its new president.

The appointment of Shaun E. McAlmont was announced Thursday in a news release from the school. He takes over the post from Edward “Ned” Levine, who held the job for nearly eight years.

The 49-year-old McAlmont was most recently the CEO of a technical education institution with campuses in 15 states called Lincoln Education Services. He has worked in student affairs at BYU and Stanford University.

McAlmont, from Canada, attended BYU in the late 1980s. He holds the sixth-fastest time in school history in the 400 meter hurdles.

Neumont University has 296 students. The school, founded in 2003, offers three-year degrees with an emphasis on computer science.
