Henry Mabry has officially stepped down as the head of the Alabama Education Association.
His resignation comes after the AEA board voted back in February to terminate Mabry after an audit raised concerns about his financial management of the organization.
Mabry replaced longtime AEA head Paul Hubbert in 2011. It was Hubbert who built the education organization into a massive political powerhouse. Hubbert expressed some grave concerns about the AEA's fiscal health before he passed away last year.
