My Mom Announces Her Retirement

Paine College's first woman president said Wednesday that she will retire at the end of this academic year.

. . . What's her proudest moment from her tenure? It's hard to single out one, she said. But she offered several: increasing student enrollment and graduation rates; boosting the private college's endowment; garnering re-accreditation for Paine; and renovating the historic library in which she made her announcement Wednesday. She also said she was proud of the increasing numbers of Paine graduates who pursue graduate-level degrees at other institutions . . .
