Three Finalists Set for Interviews to Be Next President of KY Council on Postsecondary Education


Kentucky’s Council on Postsecondary Education is meeting Thursday, Oct. 25,  to interview the three finalists being considered for Council president.

The finalists include Robert Donley, who is Chief Executive Officer for the Board of Regents at State University System of Iowa, and Emily Anne House, who currently serves as chief policy and strategy officer for the Tennessee Higher Education Commission.

The third finalist is Aaron Thompson, who already works for the CPE as executive vice president and chief academic officer.

The CPE is looking to replace Bob King, who recently left his post as the group’s president after nine years on the job.

President Trump nominated King in August to serve as Assistant Secretary for Postsecondary Education at the Department of Education.

Kevin is the News Director at WKU Public Radio. He has been with the station since 1999, and was previously the Assistant News Director, and also served as local host of Morning Edition.
