LIVINGSTON, Alabama — The new president of the University of West Alabama, Ken Tucker, will take the helm on Jan. 1.
The Demopolis Times reports (http://bit.ly/1yEynw4 ) the university's board of trustees recently selected Tucker following a nationwide search conducted by a committee of various campus representatives and trustees. Tucker has been serving as dean of the university's College of Business.
