The South Dakota Board of Regents has named the new president of Black Hills State University.
The board on Wednesday selected Tom Jackson Jr. to replace current president Kay Schallenkamp.
Jackson is the vice president for student affairs at the University of Louisville. The board voted unanimously to accept Jackson, the search committee's recommendation.
Jackson has a doctorate degree in education from the University of La Verne in California and a master's degree in counseling from Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. He has served in leadership roles at Texas A&M University, McMurry University and the University of Texas-El Paso.
Schallenkamp is scheduled to retire in June.
About 4,400 students attend Black Hills State. It is the third-largest among the six public universities in South Dakota.
