MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A new era has started at Alabama State University.

New president Gwendolyn Boyd received a warm welcome for her first day of work Monday as leaders hope to bring stability back to the position.

The ASU Board of Trustees hired Boyd in January. Boyd takes over at a rough time for the school. In the past year, the former president left and a forensic audit was launched.

Boyd signed a two-year contract with a $300,000 a year salary.
