Regents President and CEO Tompkins Retires; Flanders to Succeed

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Board of Regents president and CEO Andy Tompkins says he plans to retire at the end of June. After Tompkins's surprise announcement on Wednesday at the Regents' monthly meeting, the board appointed Blake Flanders, the regents' vice president of workforce development, to succeed him. Tompkins began serving on the Board of Regents in 2010. From 1996 to 2005, he was commissioner of education for the Kansas Department of Education, and then became an associate professor at the University of Kansas before moving to the regents. Flanders has been with the Board of Regents since 2008.
