Glenville State College President Robert Freeman will be stepping down next year.|
His final day is June 30th. He plans on moving to North Carolina.
The 59-year-old Freeman has served as president of the Gilmer County college since July 2003.
Ron Blankenship of Grantsville, chairman of the college's Board of Governors, says the challenge now will be to select a new leader who will continue the many great things happening on campus.
Freeman says he wants to spend more time with his wife, Sandy, and the couple's children and grandchildren.
Freeman says things have improved during his time at Glenville.
He says enrollment for the fall term is up six percent, and more than half of the faculty have doctorates, a 23 percent increase from three years ago.
Glenville State has a new facilities plan that calls for $17 million dollars in new construction over the next three years.
