ISU president finalist for Auburn presidency
Iowa State University president Steven Leath is reportedly on the "short list" of Auburn University's picks for its next president.
"We look forward to your leadership and to working for you and with you for many years", McCrary said.
Leath, who is 59, was a vice president at North Carolina when he was named Iowa State's president back in 2012.
Leath said he was humbled and honored to be chosen for the position. "I'm going to enjoy getting to say that on a regular basis". After stepping down as president later this year, he will remain at Auburn teaching a higher education administration course and conducting special projects.
According to a press release on its website regarding the presidential search, "the University is seeking a visionary leader who has impeccable integrity, exemplary interpersonal and communication skills and a passion for educating students and preparing them for successful and productive lives".

South Supreme Airlines Aircraft Crashes in South Sudan

"I don't know, but it's nearly a necessity for (the next president) to have that land-grant experience", Earlon McWhorter said. Iowa State - originally called the Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm - is the nation's first land-grant college.
Leath, whose career has included experience at land grant universities similar to Auburn, has impressive credentials but is not without controversy. He's faced criticism recently for flying a university plane for personal use.
A 14-member committee began a national search in September after President Jay Gouge announced his intention to retire this summer.
Leath reimbursed ISU for the cost of 52 training flights, as well as for costs associated with several out-of-state trips.
