JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - A 39-member group has been selected to help the state College Board choose a new chancellor for the University of Mississippi.
Among them are Oxford Mayor Robyn Tannehill, former Mississippi National Guard Commanding General Leon Collins, former state Representative Charlie Williams and 2012 Miss Mississippi Marie Wicks.
The Campus Search Advisory Committee, which also includes university officials, will hold its first meeting June 14 at 11:30 a.m. at the Inn at Ole Miss.
A new leader is being sought since Jeffrey Vitter stepped down from the job after January to return to the faculty.
