The president of the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind plans to retire next year.

Terry Graham says he will step down as head of the state-sponsored school in Talladega on Feb. 1.

Graham has been at the school for 35 years, and he served as president for the last decade. Before that he was as an administrator at the Helen Keller School and in Health, Evaluation and Outreach programs.

Board chairman Lynwood French says trustees will conduct a search for a successor.
