The President of St. Cloud State University has been killed in a car crash. The university released a statement on their website and on their Facebook page earlier this (Tuesday) morning saying that President Earl Potter has been killed in a crash.
MnSCU Chancellor Steven Rosenstone says Potter was on his way to the Twin Cities for a meeting with the Foundation Board Chair.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the crash happened just after 5:30 p.m. yesterday (Monday) in Brooklyn Center on Interstate 694. Potter’s vehicle went off the road and hit a guard rail. The vehicle then flipped multiple times.
Potter was 69-years-old.
The chancellor has named Provost Ashish Vaidya to serve as the Acting President.
Potter has been SCSU’s President since 2007.
A news conference has been scheduled for 11:00 a.m. this morning.
