UK won't make presidential finalists' names public

LEXINGTON, KY. (AP) - At least one of the finalists to become University of Kentucky president has objected to the finalists' names being made public, so the only name that will be released will be the preferred candidate.

The university's presidential search consultants, Greenwood/Asher & Associates of Florida, reported that one or more candidates objected to having their names released, university spokesman Jay Blanton told the Lexington Herald-Leader.

The number of finalists hasn't been revealed. They were given the option of having their names made public if everyone agreed. University trustees are expected to choose a preferred candidate, who would tour the campus and meet with UK groups before a formal deal is offered in early May.

The state's flagship university is looking for a successor to President Lee T. Todd Jr., who is retiring in June after 10 years of leading the school.
