BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A familiar face is taking over the helm at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches.

The Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System on Thursday named Chris Maggio president of the school over another finalist, William Wainwright.

Maggio has worked at Northwestern State for close to 30 years, most recently serving as acting president.

In a statement, Maggio said it’s an honor for him to take the role as president full time and he looks forward to collaborating with “students, faculty and staff to ensure the university continues on its positive trajectory.”

Maggio replaces Jim Henderson, who led Northwestern State prior to beginning his new role as UL System President and CEO in January.
