MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The state Board of Education has picked eight people, including former IPFW chancellor Michael Wartell, to interview for chancellor of Alabama's two-year college system.

The board voted unanimously Thursday to interview eight recommended by a consultant.

They include John Schmidt, senior vice chancellor of advancement at Troy University; Gregory Gray, chancellor of the Riverside Community College District in California; Blake Flanders, vice president of workforce development for the Kansas Board of Regents; and Daniel Howard, executive vice president and provost of Arkansas State University.

Also on the list are Bruce Murphy, vice president for academic affairs at Air University in Montgomery; Mark Heinrich, president of Shelton State Community College; and Kandis Steele, director of academic programs for Alabama's postsecondary program.

Wartell is now chancellor emeritus with IPFW after his contract ended June 30. He turned 65 this year, the mandatory retirement age for Purdue University executives.
