FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky State University Board of Regents has named the school’s interim president.

Board members announced Tuesday that administrator Aaron Thompson will become interim president until a permanent president is chosen. The announcement came a week after Raymond Burse announced he was stepping down after two years of serving as the university’s president.

Thompson’s term will begin immediately. He told the Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/1Xc0zqd ) that as interim president, he will examine the current budget, enrollment management system and other infrastructure.

He previously worked as executive vice president of the Council on Postsecondary Education as a specialist in educational attainment and academic success.
