The dean of Iowa State University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences says she's the person the school needs as its next president. Wendy Wintersteen spoke Thursday at a public forum where she said it would take too long for an outsider to learn about the school while urgent action needs to be taken. Wintersteen is the only person from ISU to be chosen as a finalist for the job vacated by Steven Leath, who's now the president of Auburn University. Wintersteen says under her tenure, agriculture research has increased dramatically and she said many more students are enrolling in the ag program. The Board of Regents meets October 23rd to hear from the search committee, interview the finalists and select a new president.
