President Lorraine Sterritt has resigned.
Chair of the Board of Trustees, Sallie Craig Huber, informed the College of the resignation in an email sent Friday afternoon. Sterritt later confirmed her decision in an email sent from the Office of the President.
“For the last four years it has been my very great honor and privilege to serve as President of Salem Academy and College. During that time our students have impressed me profoundly with their intellectual curiosity, their social consciousness, their athletic talent and love of competition, and their brilliant artistic performances of every kind,” Sterritt wrote. “Through their commitment to this remarkable institution, our faculty, staff, administration, alumnae, Board of Trustees, and Board of Visitors have consistently demonstrated their love for Salem and their dedication to our mission, and I will always be grateful for their hard work and their support.”
Sterritt has accepted the position of president of Saint Michael’s College, effective July 2018. A successor has not yet been appointed.
