The Oregon Board of Higher Education has named an executive from the wood products industry as president of Eastern Oregon University in La Grande.
The board voted unanimously for Tom Insko, a manager for Boise Cascade in La Grande, The Observer newspaper reports .
Insko holds degrees from Eastern in mathematics and business-economics. He succeeds Bob Davies, who left in 2014 to become president of Murray State University in Kentucky. Former board financial officer Jay Kenton has been interim president.
Other finalists were Martin Tadlock of Bemidji State University in northern Minnesota and Cynthia Pemberton of Dickinson State University in North Dakota.
A fourth, Marysz Rames of Dakota State University in South Dakota, withdrew last week, saying she wanted to remain in the Midwest.
