Hocking College President Resigns
(2008-09-06)
(WOUB) - The only president Hocking College has
ever had plans to leave after the current school year.

Seventy-seven-year-old John Light announced Thursday that he'll retire in June. He's led the two-year southern Ohio school since it was created in 1968.

His current two-year contract ends June 30. Light had told trustees that he would leave when the contract expired, and he reminded them in a memo this week that it's time to start looking for a successor.

The state auditor, attorney general's office and the Ohio Ethics Commission are investigating possible fraud and theft at Hocking College.

Light has denied any wrongdoing in using a fund he controls to pay for tens of thousands of dollars in foreign travel for himself, his wife and college trustees.
