The head of Alabama's two-year college system is retiring.
Mark Heinrich will step down as chancellor of the Alabama Community College System on April first.
System trustees accepted his notice at a meeting in Montgomery on Wednesday. Heinrich has been on medical leave since August, with Jimmy Baker serving as acting chancellor.
The Opelika-Auburn News reports that a statement from the system says Baker will continue in the position.
The Alabama Community College System includes 25 two-year colleges; Marion Military Institute and the Alabama Technology Network, a workforce training program.
