ASU President loses out on Florida position

August 21, 2002

The President of Albany State University is considered for chancellor of Florida's University System.

Dr. Portia Holmes Shields was one of three who interviewed for the position overseeing Florida's universities, community colleges, public and private schools. Dr. Shields didn't get the job, but says she was honored to be one of the finalist.

"This was an excellent opportunity to try something new, just like I did when I took the job here at ASU," said Shields.

Dr. Shields says she's not looking for other positions, but will always keep her options open. She has served as President of ASU for nearly 7 years.
