President of Kentucky Wesleyan College Announces Retirement

Dr. Craig Turner says he will retire on September 15th.
After 3 years as President of Kentucky Wesleyan College, Dr. Craig Turner says he will retire on September 15th.
Dr. Turner made the announcement this morning.
In his statement, Turner said, "I am pleased that the enrollment strategy we initiated in 2011 is coming to fruition with a significant increase in freshmen in August. We are about to begin an extensive renovation of one of the dorms, Kendall Hall, and the Louisville Conference of the United Methodist Church made a joint appointment this summer with the assignment of Rev. Jim Coleman as pastor at Wesleyan Heights United Methodist Church and as chair of the Religion Department at Wesleyan. A debate team will be added this fall, as well as an NCAA bowling team. This is an exciting time for Wesleyan, and a tough time to be leaving.”
Dr. Turner has plans to retire to Texas with his wife, Annette, where they'll be near their two grown children and three grandchildren.
A college official says a successor will be announced at a later date.
