LITTLE ROCK, AR - A man who former President Clinton calls a "champion of America's finest values" will lead the Clinton School of Public Service starting June 1.

Former U.S. Senator David Pryor accepted the position yesterday to be dean of the school at the Clinton Presidential Library at Little Rock.

Pryor has a career that includes terms as governor and congressman and 18 years in the Senate.  Pryor has been a Fulbright Distinguished Fellow of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Arkansas.

Pryor also served a two-year term as director of Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Pryor says the school will focus on the breadth of the "social and cultural universe" rather than limiting itself to politics.
