Lubbock Christian University in Texas has scheduled a 10 a.m. Central news conference Friday to announce the university’s sixth president.
Two finalists — L. Timothy Perrin and Brian Starr — were invited recently to visit with the Lubbock Christian search committee.
Ken Jones, who served as Lubbock Christian president for 18 years before transitioning to the role of chancellor last year,  will make the announcement on behalf of the university’s board of trustees.
The press conference will be available live online at LCU.edu/live.
Elsewhere, Oklahoma Christian University in Oklahoma City is expected to name its news president Saturday.
Oklahoma Christian’s two finalists — John deSteiguer and Allison Garrett — were revealed late last year.
Mike O’Neal, Oklahoma Christian’s president since 2002, announced plans in 2010 to step down at the end of the 2011-2012 academic year.
Meanwhile, Harding University in Searcy, Ark., has launched a website to accept applications and recommendations for its next president.
Harding President David Burks plans to retire at the end of the 2012-13 academic year after 26 years at the helm.
