Mid-Continent University appoints new acting president, fires former leader

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, April 15, 2014 10:27 AM EDT

Officials at the financially struggling Mid-Continent University have named a new acting president.

The Paducah Sun reports Robert "Tom" Walden was named to the post Saturday after interim president Ken Winters stepped down because of family health issues.

The school's Board of Regents also fired former President Robert Imhoff and his wife, Jackie, who had served as vice president of adult services.

The Imhoffs agreed in February to step down from their roles at the college, but continued to draw a salary until Saturday's vote.

Board of Trustees Chairman Tom Butler said Robert Imhoff was terminated for cause but declined to say more.

Walden has agreed to stay in the post for a month, which will get the school through its May graduation ceremony.
