Boyd may be UT president
Former Tennessee Republican candidate for Governor and Hamblen County native, Randy Boyd, has been named as a possible interim president for the University of Tennessee. Current UT President Joe DiPietro will retire on November 21. The UT Board of Trustees will meet next week to consider an interim appointment. Boyd owns Radio Systems in Knoxville as well as the Smokies baseball team. UT board chairman John Compton says appointing an interim president gives the trustees time to plan for the university's future. Boyd headed up the "Drive to 55" and tnAchieves, and also served as Gov. Bill Haslam's adviser for higher education. He also served as chair of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and as Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. Board officials said that through his philanthropy, Boyd supports the UT Knoxville Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research and the UT Institute of Agriculture's seed grant program for student entrepreneurs. "He's a true public servant, and he will work every day to make sure the University of Tennessee System is meeting the needs of our state," added Compton.
