A national award from Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI), one of the highest honors in public radio broadcasting, has capped the list of accolades KCCU has received for work completed in 2012 by news director Clinton Wieden and reporter Mitch Watson.
A ceremony held Tuesday saw Cameron University dedicate a new softball field and athletic center, the first completed project of Campus Master Plan 2025 and the final project of the presidency of Dr. Cindy Ross.
In an release sent late Friday afternoon, Cameron University announced the selection of Dr. John McArthur as the institution's 17th president. He will take over effective July 1, replacing the retiring Dr. Cindy Ross.
McArthur has served as Cameron's provost since 2006, overseeing the academic areas of the university and working on major university initiatives. Prior to that appointment, he served as the dean of CU's School of Science and Technology.
