HAVRE — The dean of the College of Technical Sciences at Montana State University-Northern will serve as interim chancellor after the resignation of Chancellor James Limbaugh.

MSU President Waded Cruzado said Friday that Greg Kegel is a natural choice for a leadership position, and will serve in the post for the "foreseeable future."

Kegel began working at Northern in 1982 as a professor of industrial technology and design drafting. He was named a dean in 2001. He has worked to expand Northern's technical programs, including introducing internships with national and international businesses and helped secure more than $5 million to build Northern's Applied Technology Center.

Kegel says he's humbled and honored to be asked to lead Northern.

Limbaugh resigned effective Friday, saying controversy over several issues on campus and in the community had become a distraction.
