WEST LIBERTY, W.Va. (AP) — A search committee has chosen four finalists for the president's job at West Liberty University.

The candidates announced Tuesday are West Liberty College of Education dean Keely Camden; Hazard Community and Technical College president and CEO Stephen Greiner; Ron Dempsey, vice president for university advancement at Southern Polytechnic State University; and Cheryl Torsney, who most recently served as senior vice-provost at the University of Texas, El Paso.

The Board of Governors plans to choose a new president in mid-October and submit the candidate's name to the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission for final approval.

Former president Robin Capehart resigned in March amid allegations of ethics violations. Capehart later settled an ethics complaint alleging he asked a university employee to work for his film company.
