HENDERSON, Tenn. (AP) – The board of trustees at Freed-Hardeman University has chosen David Shannon as the school's new president.

Shannon will become the 16th president of the university, based in Henderson in West Tennessee.

He assumes office this summer, replacing retiring President Joe Wiley, who served nine years leading the university.

Shannon, of Mount Juliet, studied at Freed-Hardeman. A news release from the university says he began preaching in Middle Tennessee at age 14. He has worked with the Timothy Hill Children's Ranch in New York.

John Law, chairman of the university's board of trustees, described Shannon as "an expert communicator, collaborator, team builder, motivator and encourager." The board selected Shannon at a meeting Friday.

The university also has locations in Memphis and Dickson.
