ASU Presidential Search Committee Interviews Final Candidates


By Brittany Bivins

Alabama State University's image problems became the focus of its presidential search.

Three candidates are now in the running to become ASU's next president. Friday, they faced tough questions about how to deal with  an audit showing financial mismanagement.

Quentin Ross, Gwendolyn Boyd, and Samuel Nichols all said they would be committed to improving the school's image if they become president.

"We are under a cloud that has threatened our integrity, so what we need to do is work to restore that integrity," Ross said.

"From experience, you have to say to the community we're going to be transparent in everything that we do. We're going to do our own assessment," Boyd said.

"One thing I will never ask you to do, is I will never ask you to do anything that is immoral, illegal or unethical," said Nichols.

The search committee has not said when it will announce its final choice.
