BATON ROUGE - Four people will interview next month for the vacant presidency at Northwestern State University.
The university's presidential search committee met Thursday to cull a list of 12 recommended candidates to the four who will interview the week of Sept. 8 on the Natchitoches campus.
The four semifinalists are:
- Lisa Abney, provost and vice president of academic and student affairs at Northwestern State
- James Henderson, chancellor of Bossier Parish Community College, Bossier City
- Linda K. Rinker, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Davenport University, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

A new president is expected to be named at the end of September.
