GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Mid-Continent University announced Tim Walker of Paducah is the new vice president for finance and administration, replacing Andrew Stratton who retired on June 30.
MCU President Robert Imhoff said Walker was selected after a national search that attracted more than 30 candidates.
“I am pleased that the top candidate is from this area,” Imhoff said. “It is evidence of the region’s highly skilled workforce. The university benefits because Tim and his family don’t have to move and make the transition from another state.”
