SBOE reopens search for Ala. junior college chief
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The state board of education is reopening the search for a chancellor for Alabama's two-year college system.
The board voted 7-2 Thursday to seek more applicants after there were only two who a majority of the board wanted to call back for a second interview.
The board's president, Gov. Bob Riley, voted to reopen the search. He said there were a few applicants who appeared to be able to do the job, but there was no one who had the enthusiastic support of everyone on the board.
The previous chancellor, Bradley Byrne, resigned in May to run for governor.
