Four more people applied for the Grambling State University president position Wednesday while two of the previous five applicants dropped out.

The newest applicants include: Carlos Clark, special assistant to the president for accreditation at Arkansas Baptist College; Audrey Freeman, principal/executive director at Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy middle and high school, in Baltimore, Maryland; Angelia Young Jones, adjunct professor of political science in the Brailsford College of Arts and Sciences at Prairie View A&M University, in Prairie View, Texas; and Dessie Mae Sanders, ninth grade English and literature Uplift Education at Summit International Prepatory High School, in Arlington, Texas.

Sanders is also a GSU alum.

Ivory Nelson, president emeritus of Lincoln University, in Jefferson City, Missouri, and Jerald Woolfork, vice president of student affairs at State University of New York at Osweghad, dropped out of consideration, according to a University of Louisiana System press release.

Paul Bryant, associate provost, enrollment management at Albany State University; Rick Gallot, a Rutson attorney, former state lawmaker and GSU alum; and Donnovon Outten, associate vice president for academic affairs in Webster University in Webster Groves, Missouri; are also in the running for the presidency.

The UL system board will meet to discuss the selection of the next GSU president July 26 in Baton Rouge.
