NORMAL, Ill. -- Illinois State University is another step closer in its search for a new school president.

The ISU Board of Trustees met Saturday to find a replacement for University President Doctor Al Bowman.

ISU spokesman Jay Groves says Florida-based search-firm Greenwood/Asher and Associates will now join the efforts.

Groves says ISU has worked with the firm in previous years.

The next step is getting a University search committee together to work with the firm and board of trustees.

The school hopes to name a new President before the fall semester.

Bowman, who is in his tenth year at ISU, announced last month he's retiring because of his health.
