Second Candidate For USM Presidency Visits USM Gulf Coast

The second of three candidates for the USM Presidency came to the Gulf Coast campus on Thursday.

Dr. Terry Hickey has a PhD in psychology and is currently the provost at the University of Akron in Ohio. He met with several campus groups, including faculty, staff and students Thursday afternoon.

We asked what some of them thought of Dr. Hickey.

"I really enjoyed his philosophy, what he holds for the university, the staff morale and how he will work toward that," staff member Adrienne Floyd-Reese said.

"If I were sitting with the IHL, I think they would be quite impressed, impressed with his being very articulate, and an enthusiastic person," Jean Wiesenburg said.

The third presidential candidate will be on the Coast Friday. A decision on the choice for president will be announced Saturday.
