An administrator who has been at Haskell Indian Nations University for nine months is now the school's top administrator.
Clyde Peacock, Haskell’s vice president for university services, is also interim president.
Peacock took over the interim job earlier this month for Chris Redmond, who finished his 120-day term and returned to his regular post as an education specialist in a regional office of the Bureau of Indian Education in Oklahoma City.
Peacock — who previously supervised K-12 Indian schools in the Sacramento, Calif., area — is scheduled to lead Haskell until early July, unless a full-time president is appointed before then by Keith Moore, director of the bureau.
A presidential search has been ongoing since the Nov. 1 resignation of Linda Warner, who had been sent to handle other bureau duties off campus since September 2009. Applications were due Dec. 6, and Moore has a list of 10 candidates for review.
No formal timeline for an appointment has been set.
