FULTON, Mo. (AP) - Westminster College has picked Fletcher Lamkin to take over as its next president later this year.

The college made the announcement Monday. Lamkin is now president of West Virginia University at Parkersburg and previously served as president of Kansas Wesleyan University.

His selection marks Lamkin’s return to Westminster College, where his 2000-2007 administration included record fundraising and campus improvements.

Lamkin says in a news release that Westminster is the only school that could have induced him to leave his present position.

The college says news of his return was celebrated by faculty, administration and alumni. It cited his knowledge of the school and his relationships with alumni.

Kurt Jefferson, director of the Churchill Institute for Global Engagement at Westminster, says Lamkin led Westminster to its “greatest era of student growth.”
