ASU's Interim Appointments

An Angelo State University press release stated:

Angelo State University President Brian J. May has named Angie Wright and Dr. June Smith to interim administrative positions at the university.
Wright, associate vice president for finance and administration, will become interim vice president for finance and administration on March 15.  She will succeed Michael L. Reid, who has resigned, effective that date, to accept a position as vice president for administration and finance at the University of Montana in Missoula.

Smith, professor of communication and member of the graduate faculty, will serve as interim dean of the College of Graduate Studies, effective Feb. 1.  She succeeds Dr. May, who held that position simultaneously with his post as provost and vice president for academic affairs until November when he was appointed ASU president. 

May said neither interim appointee will be a candidate for the permanent position when each is filled.  

Did anyone else notice the gap between November 2012 and February 2013 for Graduate Dean?  Was the role completely unfilled or did someone perform the job anonymously? 

Certainly a new President would want somebody in that role, especially given graduate studies major role in ASU's growth.  Who was the mystery Interim before the current Interim?

I believe that Brian May was still the dean up until the interim was appointed last week.

As always you do an incredibly good job at getting HALF of the facts. Brian May served as dean until an interim was chosen.

From ASU's press release 11-7-12:

He previously served as dean of the College of Graduate Studies at Angelo State from 2009 through 2011 before being named interim provost and vice president for academic affairs.

In the in-betwixt and in-between a new Dean of Graduate Studies stood ready to be named. Then Rallo took the shufflock to Lubbock and that was put on hold. This person stood to be May's new #2.
