Ball State down to 5 presidential finalists

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — The head of Ball State University's presidential search committee says it plans to interview five finalists seeking to become the school's new leader.

The new president will replace Jo Ann Gora, who plans to retire in June after 10 years leading the 18,000-student university in Muncie.

Search committee chairman Wayne Estopinal tells The Star Press (http://tspne.ws/1kuFaBB ) the names of the finalists are being kept confidential but that the group doesn't include political figures or current business executives.

Estopinal says the finalists were picked from among 22 applicants who were first reviewed by an executive search firm.

The committee intends to interview the finalists in private this month and recommend two or three finalists to Ball State's Board of Trustees to consider.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
