Truman State provost named president


KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- Truman State University provost Troy Paino (PAY-no) is the school's new president.

The selection, announced Monday, makes official a decision put in place two months ago when Paino was designated the finalist. He will start his new job May 10.

Darrell Krueger has served as interim president since Barbara Dixon resigned last year.

Paino is provost and vice president of academic affairs at Truman. He was among 66 people who applied. He was previously dean of the college of liberal arts at Winona State University in Minnesota.
