MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The State Board of Education meets Thursday to begin paring down the list of 12 candidates for chancellor of Alabama's two-year college system.
The board interviewed six out-of-state and six in-state candidates last week. Board members questioned the candidates about their backgrounds in work force development, their commitment to diversity, and how they feel about legislators working for two-year colleges.
The board is looking for a replacement for Bradley Byrne, who resigned as chancellor in May to run for governor.
