ATLANTA — The Board of Regents has voted to select Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith as the next president of Fort Valley State University in middle Georgia.

Griffith is currently the provost and senior vice president at York College of the City University of New York. He was the sole finalist, and the board’s vote on Friday was unanimous.

Griffith will replace Larry Rivers, who is stepping down June 30. University system Chancellor Hank Huckaby has named Kimberly Ballard-Washington, assistant vice chancellor for legal affairs, to serve as interim president until Griffith starts on July 22.

University system officials say Griffith has served in his current position since 2007 and has increased the number of full-time faculty at York College by 30 percent, reorganized the academic division and established an undergraduate student research program.
