DOVER, Del. (AP) - After four decades at Delaware Technical Community College, President Orlando George Jr. will retire in June.
At a meeting of the Board of Trustees at the Stanton campus this week, 68-year-old George said it's "time to pass the baton to the new generation."
George began as a math instructor at the school in 1969 and has served as president for 19 years. The post has earned him distinction as the state's highest-paid employee.
After a search that will include outside applicants, the Board of Trustees will select George's replacement. It's not clear when the search will be completed.
