Chancellor recommends 3 for Alabama colleges

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's chancellor of postsecondary education is recommending three out-of-state educators to serve as the presidents of Bevill State, Gadsden State and Lurleen B. Wallace community colleges.

Chancellor Bradley Byrne is recommending Anne McNutt for Bevill State in Sumiton.

McNutt recently ended a 21-year career as president of the Technical College of the Lowcountry in Beaufort, S.C.

Bryne's choice for Wallace in Andalusia is Herbert Riedel.

Riedel has been vice president for instruction and student development at Northeast Texas State Community College in Mt. Pleasant.

Byrne's recommendation for Gadsden State is Darryl Harrison, who's been a vice president at West Georgia Technical College in LaGrange.

The State Board of Education is scheduled to vote on the three recommendations Thursday.
