Following is the text of the statement made by Craig Larson, chair of the STLLCC Board of Trustees, regarding the board's decision to approve the personal leave request by Chancellor Myrtle E. B. Dorsey, at the Sept. 26 public meeting.

"The St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees is announcing tonight that Dr. Myrtle E. B. Dorsey has requested and the Board has approved granting her personal leave through June 30, 2014. Other details relating to Dr. Dorsey's status with the College are being finalized.

I speak for the entire Board in expressing our appreciation of Dr. Dorsey's contributions to St. Louis Community College and our wish for her future success.

We will be hiring an interim chancellor within the next few weeks to serve through June 2015 or until a permanent chancellor is named. However, effective immediately, Dr. Donna Dare, Ph.D., vice chancellor for academic and student affairs, has agreed to serve as acting chancellor.

With this great depth in leadership at St. Louis Community College, and with our strong faculty and staff, we are sure that the college will continue to serve the public as one of the area's greatest assets, educationally, economically, and culturally, and will remain fully committed to moving ahead toward fulfilling the college's mission, vision and values as we continue to focus on helping all our students succeed and achieve their goals."
