NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – After more than two decades at the helm of Virginia Wesleyan College, President Billy Greer will retire next month.

Greer joined the Norfolk college in 1992 and will step down on June 30. He announced the decision at the school’s annual May Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday.

“I’m most proud of the improvements to our campus over the last 22 years and the significant difference they have made for our students,” said President Greer in a college press release. “I’m deeply grateful to our Board of Trustees for their generosity and support of the College. My time here has been a labor of love. I look forward to getting our new strategic plan off the ground in 2014-15 and leaving the College well-positioned for a successful future.”

The Board of Trustees will oversee a process that includes a national search for the college’s next president.
