Alabama State University trustees will soon vote on the next president of the university.

The trustees are scheduled to take up the matter at a meeting Dec. 20. A notice from the Alabama Secretary of State indicates that the board will meet to vote on the next president.

Members of a search committee last week interviewed three finalists for the job: state Sen. Quinton Ross Jr. of Montgomery; Gwendolyn Boyd of John Hopkins University; and retired Brig. Gen. Samuel Nichols Jr. of Virginia Friday afternoon.

The school is trying to replace Joseph Silver, who was suspended from the presidency and then left with a $685,000 severance package after three months on the job.
