U. of Georgia Insider Is Named Sole Finalist for Presidency

Jere W. Morehead, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at the University of Georgia, has been named the sole finalist to succeed Michael F. Adams as the institution’s president, the University System of Georgia announced on Monday. Mr. Adams announced last year that he would retire at the end of June. Mr. Morehead is a 1980 alumnus of the university’s law school and joined the business-school faculty in 1986, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Athens Banner-Herald notes that he would be the first alumnus to become the institution’s president since Fred Davison was chosen in 1967.
