Third Winthrop presidential finalist presents Tuesday

Winthrop University will host one of its presidential finalists Tuesday in a public presentation where the candidate will take questions.

Alan Shao, professor and dean at the College of Charleston, is the third and final candidate to visit campus as Winthrop gets closer to naming its 11th president. The event will be held in the Whitton Auditorium in Carroll Hall from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Finalists Jeff Elwell of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Dan Mahony of Kent State University held public events at Winthrop last week.
