ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Southern Oregon University Board of Trustees has chosen Linda Schott to be the school’s next president.

The 59-year-old will move across the country from her current job as president of the University of Maine at Presque Isle.

Schott’s three-year contract will pay her $240,000 per year. She starts later this summer.

Schott emerged from a pool of 77 applicants to lead the Ashland-based university that has a history of financial problems.
