Board reviews 3 finalists for Alabama chancellor

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The State Board of Education is meeting to review three finalists for chancellor of Alabama's two-year college system.

The three called back for interviews Friday afternoon are John Osborn, the director of academic programs and policy for the University of Alabama at Birmingham; Rose Johnson, the president of Haywood Community College in Clyde, N.C.; and Freida Hill, deputy commissioner of the Technical College System of Georgia.

The school board is looking for a replacement for Bradley Byrne, who resigned in May to run for governor.
