SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

The LSU Shreveport Chancellor Search Committee has narrowed down the search for its next Chancellor to four candidates.

The applicants were chosen after a series of face-to-face interviews with a group of semi-finalists.

Dr. Betsy Vogel Boze - President of the College of the Bahamas
