New SOU President's Long Journey

Linda Schott had to travel a long way to become the president of Southern Oregon University

All the way from Maine, in fact, where she was president of the University of Maine at Presque Isle. 

She is the first permanent (as in not interim) president at SOU in two years, and the first since the centralized public higher education system in Oregon broke up in favor of more local control.  President Schott visits the studio for the first time to talk about changes and challenges.
