From the Cherokee Tribune and Ledger-News:
Kina Mallard resigns as Reinhardt University president
Reinhardt University President Kina Mallard is resigning, effective June 30 and is being replaced on an interim basis by Executive Vice President and Provost Mark Roberts starting July 1, the university Board of Trustees announced Thursday.
Roberts has been leading the university since February when trustees granted Mallard’s request for a sabbatical for the remainder of the academic year.
In an interview with the Tribune Thursday afternoon, Mallard said both her sabbatical and resignation were a result of wanting to take time away and consider her future.
“I’ve been in the profession for 30 years non-stop and had never taken a sabbatical,” Mallard said. “Sometimes it’s good to be able to take some time, clear your head. It’s hard being a university president. I’ve been at Reinhardt for five years and have loved it.”…
“Dr. Mallard has provided exceptional leadership of the University during her tenure. We thank her for her service and wish her the best in her future endeavors,” said Board of Trustees Chairman Ken White.
