Kentucky State University President Mary Sias says she will step down from her position on June 30.
The State Journal reports Sias announced her resignation Friday at a special-called Board of Regents meeting.
In a statement, Sias said her decade as KSU president has been the most rewarding in her 36 years as an educator. She declined further comment to the newspaper immediately after the meeting.
Sias was hired in 2004, beating out three other finalists for the job. She was the 13th president at the university in Frankfort.
Board members said an interim president would be appointed by July 1 and a search for a new president would begin as soon as possible.
