In his nearly 41 years at the school, Rose State College President Terry Britton has watched the campus grow from a few buildings to a 120-acre complex.
Now he is ready to turn over the reins to someone new.
Britton will retire in June 2013. Now seemed like the right time, he said — he's in good enough health to do the things he'd like to do in retirement, such as traveling and fly-fishing.
“It's time to sit back a little and reflect on what everything means,” he said.
