Stephen Greiner named West Liberty University president

WEST LIBERTY, W.Va. (AP) – Stephen Greiner has been named president of West Liberty University.

The university’s Board of Governors said in a statement Thursday that Greiner will start his new role in January.

Greiner is currently the president and CEO of Hazard Community and Technical College in Hazard, Kentucky.

Greiner was chosen over finalist Ron Dempsey, the vice president for university advancement at Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia.

Former West Liberty president Robin Capehart resigned in March amid allegations of ethics violations, which he later settled.
