School of Mines acting president not leaving

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The acting president of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will not be leaving for Louisiana.

Duane Hrncir was a candidate for the presidency at Louisiana Tech University, which announced this week that it was giving the job to an executive vice president.

Hrncir was named acting president at the School of Mines after former President Robert Wharton died in September. South Dakota's Board of Regents hopes to name a permanent successor by May.
