BARABOO, WI (WTAQ) - The dean of the two-year UW campus in Baraboo was chosen Tuesday as the next president of Lake Superior State in Sault Ste. Marie Michigan.
The university's governing body is expected to finalize Thomas Pleger's nomination on Friday. He'll replace Tony McLain, who said two years ago that he'll retire.
Pleger said Lake Superior State has a "remarkable history and tradition" with a commitment to quality both in and out of the classroom.
Patrick Egan, who heads the Lake Superior Board of Trustees, called Pleger a "proven manager and administrator" who's excellent in running academic programs.
Pleger was an associate campus dean at UW Fox Valley before taking the top spot at Baraboo.
