Kennesaw State president to retire at end of June

ATLANTA (AP) — The president of Kennesaw State University plans to retire at the end of June.

KSU President Dan Papp says the job has "been a pleasure" for 10 years. In a letter sent to students, faculty and others on Tuesday, Papp highlighted the university's consolidation with the former Southern Polytechnic State University, growing enrollment and the launch of a football program.

University System of Georgia officials thanked Papp for his work during more than 40 years with the system. Chancellor Hank Huckaby credited Papp with making KSU "a world-class university."

The school, about 25 miles northwest of Atlanta, has about 33,000 students. Information about an interim president and the search for a new president wasn't immediately announced.
