MADISON (WKOW) — Edgewood College in Madison is looking for a new leader.
The school announced Tuesday that current president Scott Flanagan is leaving to take a job with Academic Search, a higher education search firm.
Flanagan has spent the last 21 years at Edgewood, serving as the president since 2014.
“I have been extraordinarily fortunate to have been able to call Edgewood College home for so many years. It has been an honor to work with such outstanding colleagues and students and to be recognized locally, regionally and nationally as an exceptional campus for quality student learning,” Flanagan said in a news release. “I’m a better person because of my time here, and I am hopeful this is a better place because of my presence.”
Flanagan will remain with the college through August and will serve as an adviser through the end of the year.
Edgewood named Mary Ellen Gevelinger as the interim president.
The college says it will begin a national search for a new president with an eye toward having a new leader in place at the start of the 2020-2021 academic year.
