David Lassner selected as next UH president

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) David Lassner has been selected as the next president of the University of Hawaii.

The Board of Regents voted on the selection Monday.

Interim president Lassner and retired Lt. Gen. Frank Wiercinski were vying for the job that comes with a $375,000 annual salary.

Lassner was appointed as interim president in September after M.R.C. Greenwood said she would step down to deal with health problems and spend more time with family. Lassner was vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

Wiercinski retired after a 34-year Army career, including two years leading U.S. Army Pacific. Some oppose his military background, and say he doesn't have the qualifications to lead a public education institution.

The board voted after a lengthy debate about whether it should delay selecting a candidate.
