An Alabama university is barring its new president from living with any romantic interest in the campus home provided her as long as she remains unmarried.
A contract signed by Gwendolyn Boyd to become head of Alabama State University in Montgomery prohibits her from sharing her presidential home with any partner. The contract notes Boyd is single and requires her to live in the house. It says the no-cohabitation clause is in effect as long as Boyd isn't married.
Democratic state Sen. Quinton Ross of Montgomery is seeking re-election after not being selected president of Alabama State University.
Ross was one of three finalists interviewed by the Alabama State trustees Friday, but they chose Gwendolyn Boyd from John Hopkins University.
Shortly after the selection, Ross announced he will run for a fourth term next year. Ross said he was thankful to be nominated to the Alabama State position, but he looks forward to continuing to represent his Montgomery County constituents.
