The LeMoyne-Owen College President Johnnie B. Watson can see the end of his road at the college and he’s put a date on it – June 30, 2015.
Watson announced Tuesday morning that he would retire on that date. It’s been quite a journey for Watson, who attended LOC as a student and ultimately served as its 11th president.
“When I graduated from LeMoyne-Owen in 1960, I never could have imagined having the privilege to serve my alma mater in this capacity,” said Watson. “It has been an enjoyable, fruitful and memorable journey thanks to our talented faculty, dedicated staff, loyal alumni and supportive board of trustees.”
