After more than a decade, the man who is known for his work with students and in the community will step down as the leader of Franklin College.
President James “Jay” Moseley announced Thursday that he will retire in June 2015. He has led the private liberal arts college and its nearly 1,000 students since 2002.
He originally planned to retire after 10 years, but the college’s board of trustees talked him into two more. When they asked him to stay a little longer for a second time, he gave them one last year, he said.
