TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Stillman College’s president is expecting to step down from his position next year.
The Tuscaloosa News reports that Peter Millet says he plans on stepping down once his current three-year contract expires at the end of June 2017. The college’s board of trustees announced Wednesday it would use the next year to search for a successor.
Millet did not specifically mention the reason of him leaving. He says he made the decision to not seek a contract extension, approaching the board of trustees about his desire.
Millet officially began his tenure as Stillman’s sixth president in July 2014. The former provost served as interim president following resignation of former president Ernest McNealey in fall 2013.
