State's Interim Higher Ed Leader Leaving

SEPTEMBER 19, 2006 - Posted at 8:04 a.m. CDT

 

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - The state's temporary leader in higher education is leaving because of health reasons.

Friday will mark the last day for interim higher education commissioner Charles McClain.

McClain began work August 1 after being appointed by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education.  He was Missouri's higher education commissioner from 1989 to 1995, and previously was president of what is now Truman State University. 

He had planned to remain as interim commissioner until the board chose a permanent replacement for Gregory Fitch.  Fitch left in June to take a similar position in Alabama.

The board is conducting a nationwide search for a commissioner, which could take months.  There's no immediate announcement on a new interim commissioner.
