BATON ROUGE – In the early 1980s with a dream of playing college basketball, F. King Alexander eyed LSU as a possible destination. While he ultimately played four years of college basketball for St. Lawrence University in New York, years later, he has been tabbed to “run the point” in a much larger capacity.
Alexander, president of California State University Long Beach, has been recommended by the Presidential Search Committee as the consensus candidate for the position of President of LSU.
“It is indeed a great honor for me to be nominated to be president of this very, very great and fine institution,” Alexander said. “I’m humbled that the Board of Supervisors would put their faith and trust in me to be the administrator of this great and important university with its reach to every parish throughout the state, from Shreveport to New Orleans.”
