The president of Faulkner University has announced plans to retire after nearly three decades in the position.
The Montgomery Advertiser reports Billy D. Hilyer announced Tuesday that he'll retire May 31, 2015, which is at the end of the 2014-2015 academic year. Hilyer has been president of the university for 28 years.
