DOVER, Del. (WBOC/AP)- After four decades at Delaware Technical Community College, President Orlando J. "Lonnie" George Jr. will retire in June.

At a meeting of the Board of Trustees at the Stanton campus this week, 68-year-old George said it's "time to pass the baton to the new generation...to a new leader who will continue to grow and advance the mission of Delaware Tech."

George began as a math instructor at the school in 1969 and has served as president for 19 years. The post has earned him distinction as the state's highest-paid employee.

After a search that will include outside applicants, the Board of Trustees will select George's replacement. It is not clear when the search will be completed and details will be released at a later date, according to the college.
