The person selected to be the University of Hawaii's next president is expected to be announced soon.

The university Board of Regents is scheduled to make a selection between two finalists at a meeting on Monday.

Interim President David Lassner and retired Lt. Gen. Frank Wiercinski are vying for the job that comes with a $375,000 annual salary.

Lassner was appointed as interim president in September after M.R.C. Greenwood said she would step down to deal with health problems and spend more time with family. Lassner was vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

Wiercinski retired after a 34-year Army career, including two years leading U.S. Army Pacific. Some oppose his military background, and some say he doesn't have the qualifications necessary to lead a public education institution.
