      Northern Michigan University's presidential search nears conclusion

      The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees is moving closer to making a selection for the university's new president.

      Wednesday afternoon the board held the final public feedback session now that all four candidates have had a chance to talk. The selection committee has narrowed the field down to four.

      The board uses the feedback session to gauge public opinion on the candidates.

      "It was a little bit of a surprise to me how different this final group would be, I thought maybe through the process it might have weed out some differences, but it maintained enough differences where we truly have a choice that can be more strategic that just simply saying who's the best of four similar people," said Rick Popp, NMU Board of Trustees.

      The board hopes to make a selection during a public forum next week.
