EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Board of Regents has appointed a search committee to help find the next president of Emporia State University.

The Board announced Wednesday that the committee is comprised of Emporia State students, staff and faculty. It will include faculty representatives from all of its colleges as well as the university's foundation and alumni boards, the Board of Regents and the Emporia community.

Current President Michael Shonrock announced in early April that he would be leaving to take over as president of Linwood University starting June 1. Shonrock previously served at Texas Tech University as senior vice president and associate professor.

Emporia State also is seeking a new president for its foundation after Dena Sue Potestio announced earlier this month she also is leaving.
