MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - The new interim president of Kansas State University says he’s not planning to make many changes while the Board of Regents searches for a permanent president.

Richard Myers, a retired four-star general and the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Wednesday he has no interest in replacing Kirk Schulz, who stepped down in March to become president of Washington State University.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/22O24sB ) Myers acknowledged Wednesday he has little experience in academia and promised he wouldn’t “pretend to know things I don’t know.” Myers is a former combat pilot and winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He graduated from Kansas State in 1965 and joined the Air Force through the ROTC program at the university.
