Sheridan Media has received the first live review of the new President of the University of Wyoming.

During an interview on our Public Pulse show, university spokesman Chad Baldwin described how Laurie Nichols from South Dakota State stood out above the other finalists.

He did meet her, personally, he said, and saw how she interacted with others on campus.

And, of course, he said, her work experience impressed the board of trustees.

He said she takes over the post, officially, on July 1, at a salary of $350,000, plus a housing allowance and benefits.
