CRESTVIEW HILLS, KY (FOX19) -

Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Ky., has announced that David A. Armstrong will become the college's 14th president. 

The Thomas More College Board of Trustees elected him. The Bishop of the Diocese of Covington and Chancellor of Thomas More College The Most Reverend Roger J. Foys approved the selection. Armstrong replaces Sister Margaret Stallmeyer, C.D.P., who will retire as president effective June 30, 2013.  He will take the helm July 1, 2013. 

Armstrong is currently the vice president and general counsel of Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio, where he was instrumental in increasing enrollment and retention, securing the largest gift ($2.1 million) in college history and developing new academic programs and initiatives, along with leading a re-branding campaign in 2010.  

"I am very pleased that David Armstrong has accepted our offer to take up the presidency of Thomas More College," said Bishop Foys. "I was very impressed with him during my interview and I have every confidence that he will build on the solid foundation of those who have gone before him, especially that of our most recent president, Sister Margaret Stallmeyer.  As bishop of Covington and chancellor of our diocesan Thomas More College, I look forward to working very closely with Mr. Armstrong." 

Armstrong has already met with students, faculty and staff prior to his selection.  He was one of four finalists who visited campus in April. He said that it is a privilege to be selected and he looks forward to the opportunity to serve as president of Thomas More College. 

"My wife and I could not be more excited to come to this beautiful area and serve such a wonderful Catholic college that has instilled students with a value-based, liberal arts education since 1921," Armstrong said.  

Armstrong holds a Juris Doctor from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Accounting from Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pa. He said his wife, Leslie, and their two children, David and Johanna, are excited about moving to the Northern Kentucky area.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    That marks a tactical shift by the Trump administration, which has previously only appeared willing to participate in discussions with the Taliban if those talks also involve the Afghan government.
