University of Alabama now has their first female president, following the resignation of a former Texas Tech president.

The school’s board of trustees appointed Judy L. Bonner, the University of Alabama’s provost and interim president.

Former Texas Tech president Guy Bailey stepped down from the position this week, citing concerns over his wife’s health. He began at the University of Alabama in September of this year.

Texas Tech is still searching for a new president to replace Bailey. Lawrence Schovanec is serving as interim president of Texas Tech.
