Former St. Pete Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin has been named as one of four finalists to replace Martin Tadlock as regional chancellor of the USF St. Pete campus.
Tadlock planned to step down at the end of 2021, but was asked to stay on by new President Rhea Law. The regional chancellor serves as the CEO of the campus and reports directly to Law.
The university received 56 applications for the post, and the top four were selected after a series of interviews — Tomalin, Melissa Gruys, Christian Hardigree and Bjong Yeigh.
Tomalin is the only local candidate in the pool.
