A big announcement at the University of Maine at Fort Kent today. The university's president John Short announced his plans to retire at the end of June.
Short says after his wife suffered a heart attack last year and had to undergo triple bypass surgery, the two decided to move closer to family in Delaware.
He says he's leaving the University in good financial shape, with stable enrollment, and revised curricula. In his last few months he hopes to continue to make curriculum revisions and move academic partnerships forward.
