Carl Albert State College President Garry M. Ivey announced to the CASC Board of Regents his plan to retire at the end of June 2016. Ivey made the announcement at the Dec. 1 Regents meeting.
Ivey said he loves Carl Albert State College (CASC) and those associated with CASC but he is ready to make family time a priority.
“This has been much more than a job to me for the past 37 years at Carl Albert,” he said. “It has been great to be a part of Carl Albert because of the people. We are all here for the students. I worked in several positions prior to becoming president and had much support in each area I served. I let my family know of my plans, then the Regents and my Executive Cabinet. My plans were then shared with campus, and as I told them, I will give 100 percent to the job of president until my last hour of the job in June.”
CASC Board of Regents Chair Ron Lawson stated, “Garry has been here the entire time I have served as a Regent. As the executive to the President and for the past several years as the President, Garry has done a tremendous job. His leadership has helped us through some difficult times and we wish him well and God speed.”
Lawson continued, “We will get a Presidential search ready as soon as possible.”
