For the first time in its 146-year history, Lexington Theological Seminary will be led by a woman. Charisse Gillett was named the seminary's 17th president Thursday morning at a special meeting of the school's board of trustees. She will take office Sept. 1. Gillett will be the first woman and the first African-American to hold the top post at the seminary.
