Mississippi community college interim president resigns
Sep. 05, 2018
SCOOBA, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi community college is again looking for an interim leader, after a president who came out of retirement to act as a temporary leader resigned.
East Mississippi Community College Board of Trustees Chairman Jimmie Moore tells local news outlets that Rick Young resigned Monday. Moore says Young told trustees he felt they didn't have confidence in his leadership.
Young was president of the Scooba-based college for nearly 11 years. He came out of retirement in May after former president Thomas Huebner resigned to seek the presidency at Meridian Community College.
Moore says trustees are asking someone else to take over temporarily, but isn't naming that person before Moore speaks to him or her.
Trustees are also extending the application deadline for permanent president to Oct. 31 from Sept. 18.
