STERLING, Kan. (AP) _ The Sterling College board of trustees names a new president, the Kansas school's 11th leader in its 121-year history.

The board said Thursday that Dr. Paul J. Maurer of Springfield, Illinois, will assume his duties on Feb. 2. Sterling College Board President Tony Thompson said Maurer will bring ``a wealth of knowledge and experience to Sterling.''

He replaces Dr. Bruce Douglas, who announced in February that he was stepping down after three years.

Maurer served the past six years at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois, as senior vice president of institutional advancement. There, he helped shape strategic planning, policy and operational decisions and led the most successful capital campaign in school history.
