HAYS, Kan. (AP) - A former president of the Kansas Board of Regents has been named interim president for Fort Hays State University.

The Board of Regents said Wednesday in a release that Andy Tompkins will serve as interim president at Fort Hays State beginning Monday. Tompkins retired as president and CEO of the Kansas Board of Regents in June 2015 after serving in that post for five years.

Mirta M. Martin resigned as president of Fort Hays State last month.

The board said Tompkins has a master’s degree from Emporia State University and his doctorate in educational administration from the University of Kansas.
