ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - After Tuesday's decision to merge Albany State University with Darton State College within the next year, the Board of Regents also named the new president.
Dr. Arthur Dunning was formally named permanent president of the soon to be consolidated ASU, following Chancellor Hank Huckaby's recommendation to end Dr. Dunning's interim status that he's held since November 2013.
The Board of Regents also named Dr. Paul Jones president of Fort Valley State University.
Jones has served as interim president of Darton State College since October 2013.
He will assume his new position on December 15th.
