BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Louisiana community college's board has temporarily named a new leader for the school.
The Board of Supervisors for the Louisiana Community and Technical College System on Wednesday appointed Dr. Willie Smith as acting chancellor of Baton Rouge Community College. He will assume that post June 17.
