The president of Gloucester County College resigned as the school turned over records to the county prosecutor involving the former school official's "alleged financial actions," officials said Thursday.

Russell Davis had been president of the college since September 2008 and was the sixth person to hold the title. He tendered his resignation to the college's board of trustees.

County Prosecutor Sean F. Dalton said his office received information about Davis' financial activities Thursday afternoon and is reviewing it.

"No charges have been filed," Dalton said. "This review must be completed before any further statements can be made."

The college, in a statement released by spokeswoman Eileen Shute, said Thursday that it had provided the records to the prosecutor but declined further comment "in keeping with board policy regarding matters of personnel or litigation."

In his letter, dated Wednesday, Davis wrote that "while I offer this resignation with some trepidation, I focus on all of the achievement and accomplishment over the last four years. I had the opportunity to embark upon an enormous opportunity, worked with some of the most prolific leaders and faculty and staff in our business, and had the opportunity to lead one of our country's best county college's anywhere."
