Transylvania University has chosen four finalists for the school's presidency, including former Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson.
Grayson told the Lexington Herald-Leader that Transylvania alumni contacted him last year after Owen Williams announced he would leave at the end of this school year. University faculty overwhelmingly approved a vote of no confidence in Williams' leadership last June.
Grayson has been at The Institute of Politics at Harvard University since 2011 and says he has begun to realize that higher education is a passion for him.
The finalists will visit campus starting Sunday.
