The State Board of Education will name a new president today, replacing resigned former leader J. D. Morris of Clay. Morris resigned from the board last week after it was disclosed he reportedly stole $172,000 from the Clay County Bank, where he was president for many years.

State School Superintendent Dr. David Stewart said the board's agenda will be altered today to make the appointment. One of the six remaining members will be appointed. The board is meeting in Grafton.

The board has three vacancies, with Gov. Bob Wise expected to name some replacements.
