Henry Ford Community College president Gail Mee resigns
Henry Ford Community College President Dr. Gail Mee will be leaving her position, the college announced Tuesday.
At a meeting of the Board of Trustees held on Monday, Mee announced that she will resign in order to pursue other opportunities. She has agreed to remain in her position until a new president is appointed.
“I have been extremely fortunate to serve at HFCC," Mee said in a statement. "It is a pleasure to work for a board that is committed to the college and our students, and an honor to work alongside a dedicated faculty and staff."
Mee also thanked the Dearborn community for its support of HFCC.
“The college is privileged to have the overwhelming support of the community," she said. "I am pleased to have played a role in the life of the college and the Dearborn community."
Dr. Mee joined HFCC as president in July 2006. She is the fourth president of the college and the first female to serve in that role. During her tenure, enrollment at the college increased more than 45 percent–from 13,000 to 19,000 students each semester.
