The wildcat family has welcomed their interim leader.
Faculty, staff, and students at Kansas State University welcomed Gen. Richard B. Myers to campus Wednesday morning.
Myers appointment to the position of interim president was announced late last week.
The K-State alum and air force veteran told the campus community, “I’m really proud to be here, I’m privileged to be here.” “I look forward to working with you and to continue on what Kirk and Noel (Schulz) have built and take K-State to even greater heights,” the general continued.
A Kansas Board of Regents search for a permanent successor to outgoing president Kirk Schulz, is expected to take upwards of eight months.
