Christian Reformed Church synod to vote in June on whether to ratify board's decision
Michael K. Le Roy, an alumnus and current provost and executive vice president of Whitworth University, has been selected to be the next president of Calvin College, a Christian Reformed liberal arts school located in Grand Rapids, Mich. Calvin College's current president, Gaylen J. Byker, is stepping down at the end of this school year after 16 years of service. Calvin's presidential search committee submitted their unanimous recommendation to the college's board of trustees Dec. 14, and the board voted to approve the nomination on Jan. 7. The Christian Reformed Church's synod will vote in June on whether to ratify the board's decision.
