Louisiana College names interim president
PINEVILLE, La. (AP) — Louisiana College has named an interim president after moving President Joe Aguillard into an emeritus role.
The private, Baptist college based in Pineville says Argile Smith was appointed Tuesday by its Board of Trustees to serve as the college’s interim leader while a search begins for a permanent replacement.
The board’s chairman, Tommy French, said in a news release that Aguillard, president since January 2005, will become president emeritus effective Aug. 1. French says Aguillard will be available to help Smith during the transition and will serve as a tenured professor in the school’s Graduate Teacher Education program.
