MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Edgewood College in Madison has chosen its next president from among its own ranks.

Forty-three-year-old Scott Flanagan was named Edgewood's new president on Tuesday. Flanagan currently is executive vice president at Edgewood and has had other roles during his 16 years with the college.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the school's executive board considered four finalists for the job, which opened with the retirement of Daniel Carey after a decade. Three finalists, including former state schools superintendent Elizabeth Burmaster, came from outside. Flanagan was the only internal candidate.

Flanagan officially takes over from Carey this summer.

Edgewood is a private Catholic college with about 3,000 students.
