Georgetown College announced Friday that its Trustees had chosen a successor to retired President Bill Crouch. 

A news conference was scheduled for Monday at 4:00 p.m., to name the school's 24th President.

Bill Crouch led the school for 22-years.  He retired in June.

Georgetown College Trustee Granetta Bingham Blevins has been acting President since late June.

A Facebook page was created several weeks ago by some alumni and friends of the Christian Liberal-Arts college pushing for former Kentucky Governor Martha Layne Collins to be named the school's next President.

Former Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry and Belmont University President Jason Rogers both withdrew from consideration in May.

Look for coverage of the naming of the new president Monday on ABC 36 News at 5, 6 and 11 and online.
