KSU president announces resignation

FRANKFORT, KY (AP) - Kentucky State University President Mary Sias says she will step down from her position on June 30.

The State Journal (http://bit.ly/1l7ad7X) reports Sias announced her resignation Friday at a special-called Board of Regents meeting. She declined to comment to the newspaper immediately after the meeting.

Sias was hired in 2004, beating out three other finalists for the job. She was the 13th president at the university in Frankfort.
