    Johnson State College president to retire in 2015

    The president of Johnson State College is planning to retire. Johnson State announced Monday that Barbara Murphy will retire on June 30, 2015. Murphy has been president of Johnson State for 14 years. Before taking over at Johnson in 2001 she was president of the Community College of Vermont. Johnson State is one of five schools in the Vermont State College system. Vermont State Colleges chancellor Timothy Donovan said Murphy’s retirement will be a loss to Johnson State and the state college system. During Murphy’s time at Johnson, the school has had a 70 percent increase in enrollment in the college’s bachelor’s-degree-completion program. (AP)
