Do you remember Kenneth Starr? Most folks remember him as the independent counsel who prosecuted President Bill Clinton back in the 90’s. Most recently he’s been the dean of the law school at Pepperdine University. Yesterday, it was announced that he is to be the next President of Baylor University. The leader of the Baylor board of regents says this about Starr:
“His depth of experience and exceptional record as a university dean and legal scholar, his dedication to the highest ideals of the Christian faith, and his profound commitment to public service and visionary leadership make him the ideal person to lead Baylor at this remarkable time in the university’s history.”
There’s already lots of talk about this in the Baptist blogosphere, and I expect we’ll hear much more. For more on this, check out the coverage in the Associated Press.
