April 22, 2011, 12:54 pm
Rep. Henry (Hank) M. Huckaby, a Republican state legislator in Georgia, is the sole finalist to be chancellor of the 35-campus University System of Georgia, the Board of Regents announced today. Representative Huckaby retired in 2006, after a long career in the university system, as senior vice president for finance and administration at the University of Georgia. He would succeed Erroll B. Davis Jr., who announced last fall that he planned to retire this June. State law requires the board to wait 14 days after naming finalists to officially vote on an appointment.
