RICHARDSON, Texas -- The Lone Star Conference Council of Presidents on Friday accepted the resignation of commissioner Stan Wagnon.

Associate commissioner for compliance Jay Poerner has been named interim commissioner. A national search for a new commissioner will begin immediately.

Conference services and programs will carry on as normal under interim  Commissioner Poerner, in whom I have complete confidence,” said Dr. Brian May, chair of the LSC Council of Presidents and president of Angelo State University.
