Freida Hill resigns as chancellor of Alabama's two-year college system after 27 months on the job

Times Daily
For the second time in less than three years, the Alabama community college system will be looking for a new leader.

The Alabama Board of Education voted 7-to-2 Wednesday to accept the resignation of Freida Hill, chancellor of the state's two-year college system. There was no public discussion before the vote, but the board spent more than an hour behind closed doors during two executive sessions to discuss "pending or threatened litigation."

Hill did not speak at the special meeting and quickly left the board room at the postsecondary offices, where she worked 27 months.

Under terms negotiated in her resignation, Hill, whose three-year contract was up later this year, will receive the rest of the $290,000 salary she would have earned this year. That amounts to about $228,000, as well as any leave she accrued and $5,000 in moving expenses.

In addition, Hill and the board agreed they will not make disparaging remarks about one another or the events that led up to Wednesday's meeting, said Bill Garrett, an assistant attorney general who was acting as the board's legal counsel.

Mary Scott Hunter, R-Huntsville, and Gary Warren, R-Haleyville, were the two board members who voted not to accept Hill's resignation.
