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.
  • Renva H. Watterson, interim president at Georgia Highlands College, Dallas, Georgia.

Northwestern State's longest-serving president, Randall Webb, announced his retirement in April.

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