Levin-Stankevich headed for Eau Claire

EWU interim president Brian Levin-Stankevich is the likely next chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, as a search committee for that position recommended he be offered the gig. Levin-Stankevich has served as Eastern's interim president since last June, when Stephen Jordan departed for Metro State.

They seem to take their hockey pretty seriously there at Eau Claire, so I'm guessing Levin-Stankevich, EWU's godfather of hockey, will be in heaven.
