The University System of New Hampshire has selected Melinda Treadwell as the next president of Keene State College.
Treadwell has been leading the school on an interim basis since the unexpected departure of former president Anne Huot last summer.
She has overseen significant cost-cutting and restructuring efforts. Like many colleges in the region, Keene State has struggling with enrollment declines.
Treadwell is an alum of the college and a former faculty member.
