FVSU president to step down


The president of Fort Valley State University spoke in Albany Thursday night just hours after announcing his retirement.

Dr. Larry Rivers will step down in June.

He served as president of the university since 2006 and had a successful tenure. The university was reaccredited.

The campus underwent a building boom and enrollment almost doubled. Dr. Rivers says it's time for him to move on.

"There's a time to come and there's a time to go and I think that after seven years I've done what I could. I've achieved the objective that I set out to do and now I think it's time to move on," said Dr. Larry Rivers, FVSU President.

Rivers graduated from Fort Valley State in 1973. He spoke to alumni tonight at Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
