ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- The University of Georgia Alumni association is preparing to host a welcome reception for the university's new president, Jere Morehead.
School officials say the alumni association's reception is being held Tuesday morning on the north campus. Morehead, the university's 22nd president, replaced former president Michael Adams, who stepped down June 30.
Morehead, who was unanimously chosen by the Board of Regents to serve as UGA president, is a 1980 graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law. Before serving as president, Morehead worked as provost and senior vice president of academic affairs.
