GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) -- Georgetown College's new president has been announced. He is M. Dwaine Greene, who has been academic vice president and provost since 2001 at Campbell University in North Carolina.

The board of trustees chose Greene as the college's 24th president last week, and the announcement was made Monday. The school said Greene was not among the original 62 applicants for the post but that the school pursued him after two of three original finalists withdrew.

Greene is a North Carolina native who worked at Chowan College and Lees-McRae College, both in North Carolina, before returning to Campbell, his alma mater. He also studied at Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia.

He begins at Georgetown in late October, succeeding William H. Crouch Jr., who led the college for 22 years.
