King University President Resigns
King University's longtime president, Dr. Greg Jordan, has resigned, on the heels of a majority of faculty giving him a vote of no confidence. More than 60 faculty and staff members voted against Jordan, 30 for him and 10 abstained. The group that was working for Jordan's resignation also said they had raised more than $200,000 in donations contingent upon Jordan's resignation. King recently announced record enrollment of more than 2,500 students. But the anti Jordan group insisted the Bristol campus has been neglected and too much emphasis was placed on pre-professional and professional programs. During Jordan's 17-year tenure, King gained university status and advanced in athletics from NAIA to NCAA Division II, among many accomplishments. The college Board of Trustees vice chair, Dr. Richard Ray, was named interim president. (SH)
