GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) -- Former Kentucky Gov. Martha Layne Collins is drawing support in the search for a new president of Georgetown College in central Kentucky.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the support is coming from faculty, students and alumni of the liberal arts school.

A Facebook page is advocating Collins in the school's search for a successor to William Crouch Jr., who is retiring.

The 76-year-old Collins says no one from the school's presidential search committee has contacted her.

Collins says she would be happy to talk to the committee.

Collins was the first woman to be Kentucky's governor. She was in office from 1983 to 1987, and her administration was instrumental in bringing Toyota Motor Manufacturing to Scott County.

She was president of St. Catharine College for six years in the 1990s.
