Officials Mum About Upper Iowa University President's Leave
FAYETTE, Iowa (AP) Officials say the president of Upper Iowa University in Fayette is on leave but they won't explain why.
School spokeswoman Monica Heaton told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier that Alan Walker is on a leave of absence, but she wouldn't say whether the leave was scheduled or unexpected.
College board of trustees chairman Robert Firth says Walker is still an employee of the university. Firth wouldn't say whether Walker would return after his leave ends and he wouldn't say who would lead the school during Walker's absence.
