(Logan-AP) -- The new Lieutenant Governor has no plans to resign as chairman of Utah State's Board of Trustees once he's sworn in to his new post.
60-year Gayle McKeachnie says after talking to soon-to-be Utah Governor Olene Walker, he has decided to continue on there, business as usual.
Walker announced McKeachnie as her number-two man earlier this week.
U-S-U officials say they look forward to having someone in the governor's office who understands the school's missions and problems.
McKeachnie says there aren't any U-S-U-related issues to push forward right away, but higher education is one of his priorities.
Walker will take over for Governor Mike Leavitt next Wednesday when he resigns and heads off to Washington, D-C to take over as E-P-A administrator.
