A utility's former chief executive officer will lead the search for a new chancellor at the University of Kansas. The state Board of Regents said Tuesday that it appointed Drue Jennings, of Prairie Village, as chairman of a search committee.
Chancellor Robert Hemenway announced earlier this month that he
plans to step down June 30 to write a book and return to teaching. Jennings was chief executive officer at Kansas City Power & Light for 14 years, retiring in 2001.
