INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) - A search committee has been formed to find the next leader at West Virginia State University, and a group of alumni say they have a great prospect.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1JyTMvE ) reports that the group of current and former students wants a West Virginia University vice president put on the short list for West Virginia State’s next president.

David Fryson is vice president at WVU for diversity, equity and inclusion at WVU.

The founder of the draft Fryson group says he’d be a perfect fit.

A Dunbar native, Fryson said he’s honored by the interest in his presidency at his alma mater, but he declined additional comment.

WVSU’s current president, Brian Hemphill, has announced he’s stepping down to become president of Radford University in Virginia.
