In an editorial published Thursday, the Pueblo Chieftain praised the job Leon has done as interim president and expressed pleasure that Leon will continue in that post for a while longer as the university searches for the right man for to take over.
Apparently, the poeple at the University of Colorado-Pueblo believe in interviewing more than one man when it comes to something as important as running a university:
Leon recently instituted an honors program that already has attracted 20 or more high-achieving top high school graduates to attend CSU-Pueblo. He also presided over the recent grand opening of the new library on the Belmont campus.
The CSU System Board of Governors needs to take as much time as necessary to find the best president available for CSU-Pueblo. In the meantime, the school is in Julio Leon's good, capable hands.
